Mental Retardation Is Dead: Long Live Mental Retardation!
Goode, David
Mental Retardation, v40 n1 p57-59 Feb 2002
This commentary discusses whether the American Association on Mental Retardation should change its name. The history of the term "mental retardation" is reviewed and it is argued that any new term will take on similar risks. The need to involve self-advocates in any terminology change is stressed.
