Overview This 64-page companion workbook to the 10th edition of the AAIDD definition manual contains practical examples, questions for consideration, definitions of key terms, and an extended case study.

This is a complete reference on understanding what mental retardation is, diagnosing the condition, and planning a customized, supports needs profile for an individual. Mental Retardation is the only definition and classification system based entirely on the concept of supports, which views intellectual disability as a condition that can be enhanced with the provision of appropriate support strategies. Developed over 10 years by an international panel of experts, Mental Retardation is the most progressive disability diagnostic system available for persons with intellectual disabilities.
