83. Castigating Assumptiona About Mental Retardation...
CASTIGATING ASSUMPTIONS ABOUT mental retardation AND LOW FUNCTIONING AUTISM. Was the psychologist in 1991 testing mental retardation or something else?
Sue Rubin
Whittier, CA Editor's note: This presentation was delivered as a keynote address at the national conference of TASH in Seattle, December, 1998.
Good afternoon. My name is Sue Rubin and I have prepared my talk ahead of time because I don’t really talk and my typing is very slow. After my written presentation I would like you to ask me questions. Until the age of thirteen, I was a typical low functioning person with autism. I was so typical, everyone assumed I was also retarded. I was tested by the psychologist and was graded at the level of a two year old. I didn’t speak, except for echolalia. I had a very short attention span, was aggressive and self abusive. In October of 1991 I was introduced to facilitated communication, and my mind began to wake up. Progress was slow at first, but after a few months I could type single words with someone pushing my arm back while I typed with one finger. In a few more months, I was typing paragraphs and going to a regular science class. When it was time for high school, my parents, school personnel, and I chose Whittier High where I could be fully included. I graduated after five years with honors and a regular diploma.
When I began to type fluently my family realized the importance of it and assumed I would go to college. I too knew I could do it. We planned my high school courses accordingly. Old stereotypes were replaced by total rethinking of autism. Fortunately, the school personnel absolutely agreed. We all became partners in this new adventure.

The voice can be put in "Boy" or "Girl" mode to add a character with a bubble over his or her head. The bubble will show each word as it is spoken and the voice can be put on "slow" for your child to follow. Talkster can thereby assist your child in learning how to pronounce words while reading.

    88. A Tail Of The Bell Curve: The Politics Of Mental Retardation
    Should anyone deny the politicization of mental retardation, let him confront the data presented herein. Two types of mental retardation can be differentiated.
    Volume 2 Number 9
    September 2000

    Political movements have victims, and the cause of diversity is no exception. Whites, Asians and males are all casualties of the diversicrat, but his most deplorable incivility makes victims of the hapless. If anyone should deny the politicization of mental retardation, let him confront the data presented herein. The life of a diversicrat is disagreeable. He is surrounded by irritants. Of them, he finds none more unsettling than race, particularly racial differences. He confronts them daily, on the athletic field, in the classroom, in the workplace and on the street. Most prickly are IQ differences. Intelligence, after all, is the hallmark of our species. The diversicrat twists and strains to explain IQ gaps away, abandoning parsimony for convolution. But he does not stop with explication. He is an ideological crusader. And like most crusades, this one has victims. Sadly, they include the ill-starred and hapless mentally retarded. Their wretched malady is secondary to the fact that they are asymmetrically black. Nature-nurture issues do not concern us here. We ask

    The Finnish Association on Mental Retardation (FAMR) is a national central organisation and a co-operative forum for organisations and persons working for the better quality of life for people with intellectual disability as well as others in need of support in learning, understanding, and communicating.
    The experience gained through the FAMR's research and development projects gives guidelines and direction for the future: focusing on humanity and equality where everybody is provided with the services they need within their own living environment. Through the Association's activities, good practices are identified to serve persons with learning disabilities.
    The FAMR wants society to offer each and everyone of its members the services they need in a flexible manner. In that way, being different is not a factor which separates people but a factor which contributes to the welfare of everybody.
    Services for life A normal living environment with daily routines is the basis of equality and a good life for a person with intellectual disability. A good start in the life of a disabled child is promoted by early rehabilitation and day care and also by providing sufficient and flexible rehabilitation and support services to the family from the very beginning. Towards the end of life, an elderly person with intellectual disability is entitled to being treated as any other person of the same age.

    People born with severe learning disability and with an IQ lower than 70 are usually characterised as being mentally retarded (possessing mental retardation).
    Learning disability
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
    (Redirected from Mentally retarded In broad terms, the phrase learning disability covers any of a range of conditions that affect a person's ability to learn new information. These conditions all affect the brain in some fashion. The most common causes are:
    • defects or errors in brain structure lack of communication between various parts of the brain incorrect quantities of various neurotransmitters , or problems in the brain's use of these transmitters
      • common neurotransmitter problems include insufficient dopamine , improper serotonin regulation, and excessive dopamine reuptake where emitting neurons reabsorb too much dopamine after releasing them to communicate with other neurons (also implicated in depression
      People born with severe learning disability and with an IQ lower than 70 are usually characterised as being mentally retarded (possessing mental retardation ). However, the word "retarded" has been abused as an insult to mean somebody is "slow". edit
