The Myth of Mental Retardation: Paradigm Shifts, Disaggregation, and Developmental Disabilities.
Smith, J. David
Mental Retardation, v40 n1 p62-64 Feb 2002
This commentary discusses whether the American Association on Mental Retardation should change its name. It argues that the term "mental retardation" should become an historical artifact of the evolution of our thinking about children and adults with developmental disabilities. The plurality of the term "developmental disabilities" is stressed. (Contains references.) (CR)
