What's in a Name?
Shalock, Robert L.
Mental Retardation, v40 n1 p59-61 Feb 2002
This commentary discusses whether the American Association on Mental Retardation should change its name. It suggests that it is time for a name change, however, the term "mental retardation" should be kept for diagnostic and entitlement purposes until such time as a better term is found and accepted.
