  • A History and Sociology of the Willowbrook State School

    The Willowbrook State School is an important part of the history of disabilities in the United States and is regarded by some as the “ground zero” of the disabilities civil rights movement. This informative text describes in great detail what life was like for the people who lived and worked at Willowbrook and how and why the institution evolved as it did. The focus is primarily on the period before Geraldo Rivera’s sensational television exposé in 1972.

    A History and Sociology of the Willowbrook State School explores a general history of disabilities and institutions and increasingly concentrates on the “medicalization” of disability, which was the impetus for the creation of large-scale institutions. The early history of institutions in New York State, New York City, and Staten Island is adroitly presented as a backdrop that allows the authors to showcase the particulars of Willowbrook itself.

    Beyond historical context, the reader is introduced to the sociology of institutions. Through the use of poignant first-hand observations and testimonials on life at Willowbrook, the authors provide readers a better understanding of the seemingly counterintuitive interpersonal dynamics and interactions that are part and parcel of life and work in institutional settings.

    • The Death Penalty and Intellectual Disability

      This book is the authoritative resource on the application of diagnostic information concerning intellectual disability (ID) in death penalty cases. In a landmark decision in Atkins v. Virginia in 2002, the Supreme Court ruled that executing someone with ID is a violation of the Eighth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which prohibits cruel and unusual punishment. In its 2014 decision, Hall v. Florida, the Court ruled that, while states have the right to establish their own rules for handling Atkins cases, they cannot ignore scientific and medical consensus regarding intelligence and the nature and diagnosis of ID. The Court rejected the use of an IQ test score of 70 as a bright-line cutoff for determining ID and ruled that all evidence pertinent to the claim, including adaptive behavior assessments, should be considered.

      This publication provides a comprehensive and cogent resource for the use of the range of professionals involved in the determination process for intellectual disability within the criminal justice system. The following are among the critical topics addressed: foundational considerations, including diagnostic criteria, the definition of ID, the analyses of Atkins cases; assessment considerations; intellectual functioning, including IQ testing and the Flynn effect; adaptive behavior; and related topics, such as cultural and linguistic factors, competence to waive Miranda rights and to stand trial, retrospective diagnosis, malingering, comorbid disorders, educational records, and professional issues.

        • 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

                      • 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.
