About this book

The current construct of intellectual disability is based on the assumption that both IQ and adaptive behaviour can be measured accurately. Intellectual Disability explains how and why this is not fit for purpose and that it is actually neither necessary nor reasonable to have a single construct of intellectual disability.

About the authors

Simon Whitaker is Senior Visiting Research Fellow at the University of Huddersfield, UK, and Consultant Clinical Psychologist in Learning Disabilities in Huddersfield. His research interests include the reduction of challenging behaviour in people with learning disability, in particular anger and aggression, the measurement of IQ in people with learning disabilities, and the nature, definition and naming of learning disability.
