Or it may be determined as a result of genetic testing during pregnancy. This program deals with the agonies and the joys, as well as the endless cycle of wrenching questions, that families face when confronted by the problem of mental handicap in their child: whether to terminate a pregnancy or how to cope with the upheavals and disruption caused by the mentally-handicapped child; whether to relinquish the child to a surrogate family-an institution or foster parents. The program shows how different parents respond to the complex problems of having a mentally-handicapped child.11 & up.System requirements: FOD playback platform.Mode of access: Internet.Title from distributor's description.

This monograph presents topical problems in mental retardation, with emphasis on learning processes, speech, and thought. The application of operant learning techniques to the development of language in the retarded is highlighted. This book is comprised of four chapters and begins by outlining directions in research on learning deficits, followed by a discussion on teaching processes in the care of severely retarded children. The next chapter deals with speech and thought in the mentally retarded, with particular reference to two basic problems: the relative priority of language or thought and the selection processes underlying language. The final chapter explores language delay and language deviation in mentally retarded children. Throughout the book, the focus is on language: its nature, its development in the constitutionally normal and handicapped, some theoretical controversies among experts in this field, and the development of appropriate techniques for teaching language to the mentally retarded. This monograph will be useful to psychologists and clinicians working in the field of mental retardation.Description based on publisher supplied metadata and other sources.Electronic reproduction.
