Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0940898306, Paperback)

AAMR defines mental retardation -- for the courts, the schools, federal and state governments, and programs across the U.S. and around the world. This latest definition presents a new paradigm which emphasizes abilities, environments, supports, and empowerment -- rather than level of disability. It focuses on how the whole person functions within the context of their environment and classifies the intensities of needed supports -- rather than an IQ- derived level of functioning. Mental Retardation is an indispensable resource for anyone interested in mental retardation. Understanding the new definition is essential for anyone delivering services today or planning for the future -- service providers, researchers, policy-makers, administrators, and students.
