    Scientists looked at gene mutations
    Scientists say they may have found a specific gene responsible for developmental problems in children. They believe the discovery could lead to new therapies for mental retardation and better understanding of how the brain develops. The researchers from J. C. Self Research Institute of Human Genetics in South Carolina said it appeared that abnormalities on a single gene on the X chromosome, could lead to mental retardation. Genes tell the body how to make one or more proteins which then perform specific activities within the body's cells.
    This is an important advance in our understanding of the biology of mental retardation
    Dr Jonathan Flint, Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics But mutated genes produce altered proteins, or no proteins at all.

    Does the Eighth Amendment Prohibition on Cruel and Unusual Punishment Forbid the Execution of the Mentally Retarded? U.S. Supreme Court to Revisit this Issue in 2002
    The Supreme Court recently agreed to decide whether it is unconstitutional to execute mentally retarded individuals convicted of capital crimes. The case involves a man with an IQ of 59, Daryl Atkins, who was convicted of a 1996 murder. After his conviction was affirmed on appeal in 1999, a second jury found it probable that Atkins would commit future violent acts that would constitute a continuing serious threat to society, and that his commission of the murder was "outrageously or wantonly vile, horrible or inhuman in that it involved torture, depravity of mind, or aggravated battery to the victim beyond the minimum necessary to accomplish the act of murder." He was sentenced to death. The Supreme Court of Virginia upheld Atkins' death sentence. Atkins v. Commonwealth of Virginia, 260 Va. 375 (2000).
    The Virginia Supreme Court was called upon to address whether the sentence of death, in Atkins' case, is excessive or disproportionate to the penalty imposed in similar cases. Although premeditated murder may warrant a death sentence in Virginia, the State has not sought the death penalty on a defendant with an IQ score as low as 59. Atkins contends that he cannot be sentenced to death due to his mental retardation. The Commonwealth argued that Atkins' mental retardation was never clearly established by his experts, and even if it had been, the execution of a mentally retarded defendant was not in contravention with the "practices that were condemned when the Bill of Rights was adopted or the evolving standards of decency."

    How can we teach life skills to students with mental retardation? A primary purpose of special education is to help students with disabilities lead successful and personally fulfilling lives now and in the future. Curriculum for students with mental retardation should be designed to prepare students to function as independently as possible in an integrated society. This curriculum should include a broad range of skills and be chronologically age-appropriate and useful to the learner. such a curriculum fosters the development of skills that increase autonomy, encourages constructive codependence, and nurtures problem solving in the home, school, community, and workplace. (From A Functional Curriculum for Teaching Students with Disabilities. Bender, Valletutti, and Baglin, PRO-ED Publisher.)
