Mental retardation : definition, classification, and systems of supports by chair American Association on Mental Retardation (AAMR). Ad Hoc Committee on Terminology and Classification. Ruth Luckasson( Book )

40 editions published between 1992 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 892 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

AAMR takes the best of its landmark 1992 definition and incorporates the latest scientific and clinical research to produce a definition of mental retardation for the 21st century. An international committee of scholars, educators, psychologists, physicians, researchers, and service providers developed the 2002 definition. In fact, the 10th edition proposes more than just a definition of mental retardation. It lays out an entire system to diagnose and classify mental retardation, including the tools necessary to plan supports for the individual with mental retardation. This classification system integrates theory with practical needs, including case studies and activities, which make it more useful, integrated, and compatible with other classification systems. The accompanying workbook and forms include everything needed to incorporate the new definition system into existing programs
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 456 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.

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

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les éléments qui composent l'analyse béhaviorale appliquée, ABA, (Applied Behavior Analysis) ont été identifiés par Montrose Wolf et ses collègues à l'Université de Washington entre 1962-64, dans le cadre de recherches exploratoires auprès d'enfants rencontrant des difficultés. Les auteurs de ce document se proposent de faire le point sur les dix dernières années de l'application de l'ABA et des recommandations pour son utilisation et des modifications dont l'ABA pourrait bénéficier. Les troubles du comportement comme les comportements d'agression, l'agressivité, les crises de colère et l'automutilation sont toujours reconnus comme étant des barrières à l'intégration sociale (éducation, travail et dans la collectivité). L'objectif principal de l'approche positive (Positive Behavior Support) et proposée par ce texte dans l'intervention auprès des personnes ayant une déficience intellectuelle, est de mettre en place une intervention béhaviorale à l'intérieur de la structure de la collectivité, afin de réduire les troubles du comportement et permettre à l'individu d'avoir les comportements appropriés pour une longue durée et d'améliorer ainsi son style de vie
