Mental retardation : definition, classification, and systems of supports by Ruth Luckasson( Book )

26 editions published between 1992 and 2002 in English and held by 811 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This manual, the 10th edition of a regularly published definition and classification work on mental retardation, presents five key assumptions upon which the definition of mental retardation is based and a theoretical model of five essential dimensions that explain mental retardation and how to use the companion system. These dimensions include intellectual abilities, adaptive behavior, participation, interactions, and social roles, health, and context. The volume then presents a framework for diagnosing and classifying mental retardation and planning supports. Taking advantage of 10 years of experience and feedback from the field, this new system more closely integrates the theoretical models with practical needs, thus making the new system more useful, integrated, and compatible with other classification systems. Specifically, the chapters address: (1) definition, theoretical model, framework for assessment and operational definitions; (2) the evolution of the definition of mental retardation; (3) multidimensionality of mental retardation (4) assessment of intelligence; (5) assessment of adaptive behavior; (6) diagnosis and clinical judgment; (7) classification systems; (8) etiology and prevention; (9) supports and their application to people with mental retardation; (10) physical and mental health; (11) public responsibility in the provision of supports; and (12) implications of the 2002 system. This classification system integrates theory with practical needs, including case studies and activities, which make it more useful, integrated, compatible with other classification systems. The 10th edition of this publication is an indispensable resource for everyone with an interest in mental retardation. (Contains more than 225 references.) (Cr)
The Milwaukee project : preventing mental retardation in children at risk by Howard L Garber( Book )

8 editions published between 1987 and 1989 in English and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examines effectiveness of preschool and family intervention in prevention of cultural-familial retardation. It attempts to resolve part of the complex of influences on early intellectual development in those born into seriously disadvantaged environments that could account for the increased risk for certain children to be identified as mentally retarded. Development of 17 subjects from infancy through age 15 is charted in terms of intellectual and related measurements, alongside 18 controls. Chapters include "Introduction to the Problem"; "The Course of Early Intellectual Development"; "Design and Method"; "Assessment of Intellectual Development"; "Learning and Performance"; "Assessment of Language Development"; "Mother-Child Interaction"; "Follow-up Assessment of Development"; "Analysis of the Children's Performance in School"; "Family Risk and Child's Intellectual Development"; "The Children and Their Families"; and an epilogue discussing the role of maternal mediation and methodological factors.

This booklet is designed to provide strategies for teaching students with severe disabilities in inclusive settings. Chapters address initial student-specific steps in planning for effective inclusive education, including developing the Individualized Education Program (iep), targeting iep objectives in the general education setting, and planning for necessary adaptations and supports. Different approaches to instruction and their application to inclusion of student with severe disabilities are also described, including large-group instruction, small-group instruction, cooperative learning groups, and peer partners. Individualized teaching strategies are provided, such as instructional prompts. Guidelines to consider when using instructional prompts are given, as well as explanations for using increasing-assistance, decreasing-assistance, and time delay approaches. Information is also provided on reinforcers and corrective feedback, including guidelines for the effective use of reinforcers and sample methods for corrective feedback. Documenting student progress, assigning grades, and evaluating an instructional plan are also covered. A case study of a third-grader with Down syndrome is provided to illustrate the successful inclusion of a student with severe disabilities. Sample classroom participation plans and checklists for planning for inclusion, considering adaptations and modifications, and evaluating student outcomes are provided. (Contains 53 references.) (Cr)

Positive behavior support for people with developmental disabilities : a research synthesis by Edward G Carr( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, prepared in response to a request from the United States Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs, reviews the published literature on positive behavior interventions and uses this database to provide four main content areas for research. Positive behavior support (pbs) is defined as an approach for dealing with problem behavior that focuses on the remediation of deficient contexts (such as environmental conditions and/or behavioral repertoires) that by functional assessment are documented to be the source of the problem. The research published on pbs between 1985 and 1996 (n=107 articles) was reviewed with respect to four categories of variables: demographics, assessment practices, intervention strategies, and outcomes. Results indicated that: (1) pbs is widely applicable to people with serious problem behavior; (2) the field is growing rapidly overall, but especially in the use of assessment and in interventions that focus on correcting environmental deficiencies; (3) using stringent criteria of success, pbs is effective in reducing problem behavior in one-half to two-thirds of cases; (4) success rates nearly double when intervention is based on a prior functional assessment; and (5) consumer needs that emphasize comprehensive lifestyle support, long-term change, practicality and relevance, and direct support for consumers themselves are inadequately addressed by the research base. Recommendations are made for bridging the research-to-practice gap. (Contains more than 300 references.) (Author/CR)
