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 )

38 editions published between 1992 and 2002 in English and held by 902 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 470 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 88 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)
