Send Internet email to: Introduction The objective of this chapter is to provide the reader with an overview of mental retardation, a developmental disability with a long and sometimes controversial history. Following a brief historical overview, the current diagnostic criteria, epidemiological information and the status of dual diagnosis will be presented. Comprehensive assessment and common interventions will also be reviewed in some detail. Historical Perspective The plight of individuals with developmental disabilities has been dependent on the customs and beliefs of the era and the culture or locale. In ancient Greece and Rome, infanticide was a common practice. In Sparta, for example, neonates were examined by a state council of inspectors. If they suspected that the child was defective, the infant was thrown from a cliff to its death. By the second century A.D. individuals with disabilities, including children, who lived in the Roman Empire were frequently sold to be used for entertainment or amusement. The dawning of Christianity led to a decline in these barbaric practices and a movement toward care for the less fortunate; in fact, all of the early religious leaders, Jesus, Buddha, Mohammed, and Confucius, advocated human treatment for the mentally retarded, developmentally disabled, or infirmed (Sheerenberger, 1983).

The other 25% live in their own apartments or houses with assistance provided on an individualized, as-needed basis by ENCORE. Statistics over fifteen years of service tell a story of growth and success. Since its inception in 1986, CORE has doubled the number of full-time residents it serves and has doubled its workforce. The supported living services of CORE, called ENCORE (Extended Networks of CORE) were established in 1991. While CORE's primary activity is and always will be the provision of optimum services to those who entrust us with their dreams, a commitment to society and the community, at large, inspires us to create new commitment that we perpetuate CORE's mission.

Exceptional Children
Pat Shenberger An exceptional child is one that is different in some way from the "normal" or "average" child. The term "exceptional child" includes those with special problems related to physical disabilities, sensory impairments, emotional disturbances, learning disabilities, and mental retardation. Most exceptional children require a lot of understanding and patience as well as special education and related services if they are to reach their full potential of development. It is estimated that one out of every ten children in the United States is an exceptional child, representing a total of nearly eight million children. However, it is difficult to determine the number of exceptional children in a given category for many reasons. The definitions of handicapping conditions are often ambiguous. Diagnosis of a condition may overlap with another condition or the diagnoses may change over time. Many exceptional children remain undetected and often parents resist having their children identified as exceptional because of the stigma attached with labeling. Families with children who have special needs are just like other families in many ways. These "ordinary" families can take many forms: traditional; single-parent; multi-cultural; and blended. They are also of various socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds.

52. Mental Retardation
mental retardation is a condition in which people have lower than normal intelligence and are unable to function at the level expected for their age.
KidsHealth Kids Kids' Health Problems
There's a new kid in your class at school. Right away, you notice he seems different than everyone else and he has a teacher's aide with him all the time. He seems nice and friendly, but you can't stop wondering why he acts the way he does. He may have a condition called mental retardation. What Is Mental Retardation?
Mental retardation
(say: ree-tar- day -shen) is a condition in which people have lower than normal intelligence and are unable to function at the level expected for their age. People with mental retardation are usually born with it, or it develops early in their life. They may also have some difficulty with daily living skills such as learning to read and write and caring for themselves. Doctors and other professionals determine that a person has mental retardation based on their intelligence and how well they can do everyday activities. Intelligence is the ability to learn and understand. Levels of intelligence are measured by special tests called intelligence tests. The score a person gets on one of these tests gives a numerical measure of a person's intelligence. This is called an intelligence quotient (say: kwo -shunt) or IQ.

[Federal Register, 57(189), September 29, 1992, p.44801] In its 1992 manual on definition and classification, the American Association on Mental Retardation (AAMR) offers the following definition: Mental retardation refers to substantial limitations in present functioning.

57. Nazis And Retards
A series of historical and behavioral convergences between adherents of the Nazi party and people suffering mental retardation.
Nazis and Retards: Coincidence? Naaaaah.
Some say there are no coincidences. If you look hard enough, you can find the amazing convergence of events that link Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy, Elvis and Jesus, or Dairy Queen and porno movies. Well, we just couldn't resist pushing the boundaries. Our psychic investigators at the Subtle Chunks Research Operation Terminally Undermining Mysteries (SCROTUM) have discovered a series of historical and behavioral convergences between believers in the Nazi party and people suffering mental retardation that shook our sanity to the core. Behold, if you dare... the first 66 of our findings:
  • Nazis shave their heads to demonstrate solidarity with the white race.
  • Retards have their heads shaved to prevent lice. Nazis conquered Europe with large Panzer tanks.
  • Retards dominate the playground with large steel wheelchairs. Ever notice how the Nazi salute and a retard's chest-thumping arm spasm are alike?
  • "Sieg Huuuuuhhhhh!" Nazis want their own separate homeland, away from the lesser peoples.
  • Retards already have their own homeland: their own wing of the school and their own special buses.

ACTS International is happy to announce the beginning of preparations for the new, already 9th season of the Georgian diabetic camp for children “Green Valley.”
In July 2004, about 60 Georgian diabetic children will spend 10 days at the camp located at a beautiful mountainous resort in Georgia.
It has become a good tradition over the last eight years that approximately 60 Georgian children diagnosed with diabetes come to “Green Valley,” meet other diabetic children, and take part in various activities – from hiking to applied arts. These 10 days of camp provide children with not only a great social experience and memories that will linger forever but most importantly, they learn to cope with the disease and learn important skills for managing diabetes. In addition, children are under continuous medical supervision of our wonderful team of Georgian and American doctors.
