The market-leading text, Mental Retardation, Sixth Edition, continues to provide educators with timely information about the causes and characteristics of individuals with mental retardation across the lifespan.

  • Changes to the new edition:
  • A new chapter on assistive technology covers strategies and current trends in the field, benefits of assistive technology, related legislation and policy issues, teacher competencies for successfully implementing assistive technology, and assistive technology across the lifespan.
  • A reorganized table of contents introduces students to the growing importance of legal issues earlier in the book, and divides the material on causes of mental retardation into two chapters to address the wealth of new research on biological and social causes.
  • A new companion website is integrated into the text via margin notes that cue readers to relevant online activities and resources, such as multiple-choice quizzes, links to related sites, article responses, and case studies. Students can also communicate with one another using the message board and chat room tools, and faculty can post and maintain syllabi using the online Syllabus Manager tool.
