  • Health Promotion for Persons with Intellectual and De...

    While promoting good health among people with intellectual disability (ID) is much discussed as a public priority, there is no literature that recapitulates the state of the science in the area of health promotion for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This publication, based on a national conference conducted by AAIDD (Formerly AAMR), summarizes current research on 14 topics that affect the health and well being of people with ID in the hope of informing research, policy, clinical, and health care initiatives. The book provides a solid basis for developing interventions and solutions to eliminate health disparities among people with ID. The topics explored in this report are: hypertension; obesity; swallowing dysfunction/dysphagia; epilepsy; mental health; physical activity and fitness; women’s health; safety/injury and violence; case management and care coordination; alternative and complementary medicine; tobacco and substance abuse; secondary conditions risk appraisal for adults; and general health of people with ID.

    • Trauma-Informed Behavioral Interventions: What Works ...

      In this book, the author describes “what doesn’t work” by outlining the ways in which individuals with intellectual disability may have been damaged by the “behavioral” approach to their day-to-day actions. She demonstrates what has been missed through this approach: Needs have not been met, individuals have been misdiagnosed, and trauma responses have been triggered through the exclusive use of behavioral controls, both positive and negative.

      The author then moves on to describe “what works.” She explores the topics of stabilization, prevention, intervention, and the “mental health plan.” She proposes a model of behavioral intervention that does not require the use of restraints or contingencies; instead it promotes safety and security and addresses the outstanding issues around trauma. Numerous case studies are discussed, but all the names and relevant details have been altered to protect individuals, staff, and agencies.

      The mental health plan template the author puts forward instructs and informs staff about how to support people who have experienced trauma, both on a small scale and on a large one. She provides examples of this approach with case studies and illustrates how the plans should be written to ensure optimal implementation.
      This book gives the professionals and paraprofessionals who have dedicated themselves to this field and to the welfare of individuals with intellectual disability a trauma-informed paradigm within which to support people with intellecual disability psychologically and to establish the critical elements needed for recovery. As the author states in her introduction, “when the individual recovers, behaviors change. When the individual recovers, happiness can begin.”

      • Disability and Public Health

        Public health professionals have had few opportunities to learn about disability in a public health context. Now Disability and Public Health provides a thorough roadmap to professionals and describes how disability complements a public health context. By promoting an understanding of disability, the book provides a basis for enhancing the success of all of public health initiatives.

        “This text will most certainly become a cornerstone for building a public health discipline that will help to develop a more comprehensive approach to understanding the ecology of health disparities for people with disabilities and strategies to improve access to affordable, quality health care.”  Leslie Rubin, M.D., Emory University

        “Disability and Public Health is an important and overdue contribution to the core curriculum of disability studies in public health education. With its broad cross-disability and consumer-centric focus, nothing quite like this book of readings has been published, to my knowledge, with a public health
        perspective. This is a thought-provoking and enlightening book for students, faculty, administrators, and service providers in public health and for the disability-related clinical professions.” David Braddock, Ph.D., Associate Vice President, University of Colorado System

        Topics covered by the book:

        • History and culture of disability
        • Advocacy and the role of government and public policy in disability
        • Disability epidemiology
        • Disparities and determinants of disability
        • Models of approach to disability
        • Disability and health promotion
        • Disaster preparedness

                • Good Blood, Bad Blood: Science, Nature, and the Myth ...

                  At the vortex of the American eugenics tragedy was the seemingly sordid tale of a “degenerate” family from rural New Jersey.Published in 1912, The Kallikak Family was a pseudoscientific treatise describing generations of illiterate, poor, and purportedly immoral Kallikak family members who were chronically unemployed, “feebleminded,” criminal, and, in general, perceived asthreats to “racial hygiene.” Psychologist Henry Herbert Goddard invented the pseudonym “Kallikak”—from the Greek words Kallos (beauty) and Kakos (bad)—to illustrate the eugenic belief in the role of nature and heredity as unalterable forces leading to degeneracy, and his tale of the contrasting fates of the disparate Kallikak ancestral lines reigned for decades as seemingly conclusive proof of the hereditary nature of intelligence, feeblemindedness, criminal behavior, and degeneracy. The starting point for Goddard’s moral tale was “Deborah Kallikak,” an inmate at his institution for the feebleminded.
                  Incredibly, as revealed in detail for the first time in Good Blood, Bad Blood: Science, Nature, and the Myth of the Kallikaks, Goddard was completely wrong. No degenerate line descended from the purported Kallikak progenitor. There were only people—some of whom had resources and access to education, others of whom were poor, uneducated, and cast into the cauldron that was urban America at the dawn of the Industrial Age. The pseudonymous “Deborah Kallikak” became the poster child for societal fears regarding immigration, heredity, and racial integration, the flames of which were fanned by a select group of well-educated, upper class, American scientists marching under the banner of the new “science” of eugenics.
                  In the 100 years since publication of The Kallikak Family, the woman Goddard called “Deborah” has remained in the shadows of history, known only by the name forced upon her. Using new source material, Good Blood, Bad Blood tells her story in its entirety—in dramatic, narrative style—for the first time. It is a landmark publication in disability studies, vital to understanding of both this specific American tragedy and the history of efforts to manipulate the human population.

                                    This practical User's Guide on the 2010 AAIDD Intellectual Disability: Definition, Classification, and Systems of Supports manual informs clinicians, educators, policy makers, and program managers how to implement the various components of the AAIDD definition system in their specific job settings. The authors discuss the contemporary relevance of the supports-based AAIDD definition in the context of issues ranging from special education practices and IDEA mandates, to diagnosing individuals with higher IQ and conducting retroactive diagnoses. Policy makers and program managers will benefit from discussions on how the supports paradigm can improve quality outcomes, and how the current system incorporates the consensus in the field to utilize a supportsbased approach.

                                      Negotiating the Social Borderlands: Portraits of Young People with Disabilities and Their Struggles for Positive Relationships provides readers with narratives of the lives of three young people with significant disabilities.
                                      The author uses portraiture to narrate the stories of three young people and to capture the myriad dimensions of each unique individual. These portraits expose a balance between empirical description and aesthetic expression and provide a singular view into the nuances and complexities of each young person’s life, while depicting their unique social contexts and how they fit within those milieux.
                                      Never losing sight of the dimensions of the selves of these notable young people and the contexts in which they exist, the author presents the qualitative techniques of inquiry she used to examine the complexities involved in the co-constructions of meaning among the young people and their communication partners. Without wavering, she explores their deep relationships and the contexts where positive reciprocal relationships developed between young people with disabilities and nondisabled people and how these relationships evolved from the perspectives of the participants. 
                                      Negotiating the Social Borderlands, an unapologeticpresentation of a remarkable set of portrait narratives, is written for a broad audience and, thus, offers an inherently complex and sensitive portrayal of three personal stories in which a variety of contextualized issues can be examined and discussed in light of each readers’ practices, policies, and perspectives.

                                          In 2005, AAIDD published the first edition of Clinical Judgment to assist clinicians in making decisions or recommendations that were of high quality, valid, and precise. This need was becoming increasingly important as the field of intellectual disability was moving to a community-based service delivery system in which the concepts of equity, inclusion, self-determination, and empowerment were merging with the supports paradigm and the self-advocacy movement. Thus, clinicians were being asked to formulate high-stakes decisions and recommendations that frequently required a level of competency that extended beyond their formal training. In this second edition, the authors maintain their focus on the use of clinical judgment in situations involving diagnosis, classification, and planning supports. In addition they have synthesized evaluative input from colleagues and literature-based critiques and have extended their analysis and evaluation of the role of clinical judgment in decision making.
