Shakespeare Redux, or Romeo and Juliet Revisited: Embedding a Terminology and Name Change in a New Agenda for the Field of Mental Retardation.
Turnbull, Rud; Turnbull, Ann; Warren, Steve; Eidelman, Steve; Marchand, Paul
Mental Retardation, v40 n1 p65-70 Feb 2002
This commentary discusses whether the American Association on Mental Retardation should change its name. It argues that changing the name would not change the stigma, and would harm advocacy efforts by allowing legislators to use a terminology change to narrow eligibility for supports.
