  • 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.

              • Clinical Judgment, Second Edition

                In 2005, AAIDD published the first edition of Clinical Judgment to assist clinicians in making decisions or recommendations that were of high quality, valid, and precise. This need was becoming increasingly important as the field of intellectual disability was moving to a community-based service delivery system in which the concepts of equity, inclusion, self-determination, and empowerment were merging with the supports paradigm and the self-advocacy movement. Thus, clinicians were being asked to formulate high-stakes decisions and recommendations that frequently required a level of competency that extended beyond their formal training. In this second edition, the authors maintain their focus on the use of clinical judgment in situations involving diagnosis, classification, and planning supports. In addition they have synthesized evaluative input from colleagues and literature-based critiques and have extended their analysis and evaluation of the role of clinical judgment in decision making.

                      Community Living and Participation for People With Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities is an exploration of how to create the ideal conditions to facilitate community living and participation for people with IDD. The book addresses the complex and ever-evolving dimensions related to both the place of community and the feeling of community, including living arrangements, work, other daytime activities, financial resources, relationships, personal interests, health and well-being, faith, opportunities for learning and personal growth, self-determination and informed decision making, and rights and responsibilities as a citizen. The following topics are addressed specifically: using person-centered and positive support practices, housing, employment, social inclusion and relationships, self-determination and self-advocacy, supported decision making, health and wellness, planning for healthy and engaged aging, practices that promote quality outcomes, and the direct support workforce.

                      Each chapter includes advance organizers, discussion questions, and a resource list. The book is ideal as an ancillary textbook at the undergraduate or graduate levels and as a staff development tool.

                          This timely and important publication provides a concise review of what we know about ten key areas in the field of IDD and what that knowledge means for future developments in public policy, research, and practice. Developed as a foundational review of the knowledge base in preparation for the 2015 National Goals conference, the book examines the following areas:

                          • Aging, retirement, and end of life
                          • Education
                          • Employment and economic self-sufficiency
                          • Health and wellness
                          • Justice
                          • Long-term supports and services
                          • Self-determination and self-advocacy
                          • Social inclusion
                          • Supports for families
                          • Workforce issues

                          This book will be particularly useful to practitioners, policy analysts, researchers, and students. Taken as a whole, this work concisely illustrates the gaps between the existing evidence and what must still be demonstrated, what practices we know to be effective and contemporary strategies for implementing those practices, and where we are and where we aspire to be in our nation’s public policy.

                              The second edition of this popular book reflects many of the changes in the field of IDD in the first 15 years of this century, including an increased understanding of the quality-of-life (QOL) concept and the influence it has had on the field. This edition represents the work of 34 contributors, representing 14 countries, who capture the significant role the QOL concept has played in personal involvement and empowerment, self-advocacy, family-related QOL, supports planning, outcomes evaluation, continuous quality improvement, organization transformation, and systems-level change.

                              The sample of cultures in this edition represents a somewhat different sample than that found in the first edition and is amplified by an extensive reference list that presents a broader, more complete view of international QOL work. Chapters from the developing world are included, recognizing the significant challenges faced by many countries. The contributors to this edition include those whose work is familiar and widely published, as well as self-advocates who speak from their own experiences and insights. The chapters in this edition are grouped into the following sections: the culture of QOL, QOL at the microsystem level, QOL at the mesosystem level, QOL at the macrosystem level, and the cross-cultural QOL agenda.

                                      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.
