    State of the States in Intellectual and Developmental...

    The State of the States in Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, 11th Ed. is a thorough and one-of-a-kind analytical study of public spending and programmatic trends in intellectual and developmental disability (IDD) services across the United States. 

    In this 11th edition, extensive analyses are presented on each state’s performance over a period of 40 years, ending with fiscal year 2015. As in previous editions, this edition provides statistical profiles for each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia, as well as for the country as a whole.

    Data presented include:  

    • Out-of-home placements
    • Federal, state, and local Medicaid spending
    • Fiscal effort (a state’s spending for IDD services from federal, state, and local sources per $1,000 aggregate statewide personal income);
    • Annual cost of care across years for individuals residing in five different settings

    Authors predict future demographic and legal forces, implications of changes to Medicaid, and key challenges of the future.

    • The Death Penalty and Intellectual Disability

      The Death Penalty and Intellectual Disability is the authoritative resource on the application of diagnostic information concerning intellectual disability (ID) in death penalty cases, and will be useful to all professionals involved in ID determination processes within the criminal justice system.

      In a landmark Atkins v. Virginia decision in 2002, the U.S. 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 Hall v. Florida decision, 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 on the diagnosis of ID, which considers both IQ test scores and measures of adaptive behavior.

      The publication addresses the following critical topics:

      • The definition of ID, diagnostic criteria, and analyses of Atkins cases
      • Assessment considerations
      • Intellectual functioning, including IQ testing and the Flynn effect
      • Adaptive behavior

      Also discussed are related topics including cultural and linguistic considerations,  competence to waive Miranda rights and to stand trial, retrospective diagnosis, malingering, comorbid disorders, educational records, and professional issues.
