Mary Ann Allard
AAMR, American Association on Mental Retardation, Jan 1, 1999 - Political Science - 183 pages
From a biographical sketch of Dybwad (emeritus, human development, Brandeis U.), one learns that his pioneer work was cued by observing that many youths in the prison system were more cognitively limited than delinquent. These 33 collected speeches (1963-97) center on defining mental retardation, human potential and rights, early interventions, the role of professionals, deinstitutionalization, adult citizens in the community, and advocacy and empowerment. The table of contents serves adequately as index.
