  • 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.

                                The AAIDD definition manual leads the field in understanding, diagnosing, and classifying the construct of intellectual disability (ID). The 12th edition integrates the findings and developments of the last 10 years and presents the operational definition in a systematic approach to diagnosis, optional subgroup classification, and planning of systems of supports for people with ID. In addition, the 12th edition examines the construct of age of onset in light of the developments of the last 10 years and changes that criterion in a way that will be critically important for professionals in the field. The material in the 12th edition is presented in a user-friendly fashion and includes advance organizers for each chapter to facilitate easy access and understanding.

                                  This unique book constructs a new way to view the cultural contributions of the lives of people with ID. The legacy of people with ID is as meaningful and important as any other, and this idea is explored through individual stories set within the social and cultural construction of the idea of disability. The book is intended to be instrumental in moving toward a new moral community. A wide range of relevant literature is reviewed, to consider quality of life and the history of treatment of people with ID. The importance of social context in defining ID is stressed, as is the role of supports in ensuring participation of people with ID in the meaningful activity of everyday life.

                                      This comprehensive and compelling work presents research and evidence-based strategies related to the maltreatment of people with IDD across the lifespan. Using the public health framework that moves from surveillance to screening to intervention to policy implications, this volume presents research in a life-course perspective separated into three sections: IDD in Early Life, Adults With IDD, and Interventions for People With IDD. Together  they emphasize the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration to better serve and provide for people with IDD.

                                      Eleven chapters present research, strategies, interventions, and approaches in the key areas involved in the understanding, treatment, and prevention of maltreatment of people with IDD throughout their lives:

                                      • A systematic review of the literature on the association between childhood disability and child maltreatment
                                      • Sexual trauma in children and adolescents with IDD
                                      • Effects of the bullying of youth with IDD
                                      • Heightened social vulnerability among adults with IDD
                                      • Removing reproductive, sexual, and child-rearing rights of women with IDD
                                      • Relationships and social networks among a sample of mothers with IDD
                                      • Victimization risk of older adults with ID manifesting later in life
                                      • Prevention of maltreatment of adults with IDD
                                      • Systemic change in services for parents with intellectual and other cognitive disabilities
                                      • Post-injury monitoring of abusive head trauma
                                      • Discriminatory killing and execution of people with IDD

                                          Negotiating the Social Borderlands: Portraits of Young People with Disabilities and Their Struggles for Positive Relationships provides readers with narratives of the lives of three young people with significant disabilities.
                                          The author uses portraiture to narrate the stories of three young people and to capture the myriad dimensions of each unique individual. These portraits expose a balance between empirical description and aesthetic expression and provide a singular view into the nuances and complexities of each young person’s life, while depicting their unique social contexts and how they fit within those milieux.
                                          Never losing sight of the dimensions of the selves of these notable young people and the contexts in which they exist, the author presents the qualitative techniques of inquiry she used to examine the complexities involved in the co-constructions of meaning among the young people and their communication partners. Without wavering, she explores their deep relationships and the contexts where positive reciprocal relationships developed between young people with disabilities and nondisabled people and how these relationships evolved from the perspectives of the participants. 
                                          Negotiating the Social Borderlands, an unapologeticpresentation of a remarkable set of portrait narratives, is written for a broad audience and, thus, offers an inherently complex and sensitive portrayal of three personal stories in which a variety of contextualized issues can be examined and discussed in light of each readers’ practices, policies, and perspectives.
