        • 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.

                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

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

                            Good Blood, Bad Blood is a landmark publication in the history of the treatment of people with disabilities in this country. Written in a compelling narrative style, it tells the story of the impact of the American eugenics movement – the pseudoscience that claimed to improve “racial hygiene” through selective human breeding that excluded people perceived as “feeble-minded” or defective in some other way – through the lens of a notorious and false eugenic narrative, The Kallikak Family, published in 1912 by the psychologist Henry Herbert Goddard. That book, focused on the life of a woman institutionalized as a child for allegedly being feeble-minded, was purported to be a natural experiment proving that feeblemindedness and degeneracy were exclusively the result of  “bad” heredity. Good Blood, Bad Blood tells the true story of the impact on the woman in Goddard’s book, who had been given the pseudonym Deborah Kallikak, and who became the poster child for the cultural fear generated by American eugenicists, such as Charles Benedict Davenport. They, in turn, provided the Nazi regime with the “evidence” to take the eugenic horror to its ultimate conclusion.

                            Smith and Wehmeyer follow the development and increasing influence of the ideas of the eugenics movement, concurrent with Goddard’s rise in the new field of intelligence testing. The theories of other scientists at the time, including the “born criminal” assumptions of Cesare Lombroso and others, are also woven into the events surrounding the eugenics movement and the misuse and misinterpretation of the primitive intelligence tests in use at the time. Smith and Wehmeyer follow these movements throughout the 20th century, including the sterilization of people with intellectual disability, which continued nearly to the present.  They end this history with the real story of the woman called Deborah Kallikak, whose real name was Emma Wolverton, and who lived in an institution until her death in 1978 at the age of 89. Although she was institutionalized, she was literate, well-read, worked in a variety of jobs, and had many interests and friends.

                            In looking at these events over the span of a century, Smith and Wehmeyer point out the dangers of naive attribution of causality to any single event, circumstance, or factor -- for example, explanations of human behavior as exclusively caused by nature or nurture. Combined with this were the multiple contexts of the time, including the emergence of psychology as a discipline and societal fears and cultural stereotypes concerning immigrants, immigration, women, people with disabilities, and the poor.

                                          SIS—A has several “value-added” changes; however, the elements of the tool that contribute to the standard score and the standard score itself have not changed with this refreshed version. The new, 12-page interview form includes:

                                          • New demographic items, which allow large-scale users to easily create reports on a variety of demographic variables. 
                                          • A recorded subscale to allow more comfortable progression of sensitive topics during the interview.
                                          International purchases of SIS—A products cannot be made online. International customers interested in purchasing SIS—A products need to contact Ajith Mathew at ajith@aaidd.org. Do not place your order online.
