Author:
KLOTZ Jani
Journal article citation:
British Journal of Learning Disabilities, 32(2), June 2004, pp.93-104.
Publisher:
Wiley-Blackwell

Outlines the development of the sociocultural study of people with an intellectual disability, focusing in particular on the work of Robert Edgerton, Robert Bogdan and Steven Taylor, David Goode and John Gleason, and critically assesses the contributions and limitations of these authors. Argues that the parameters of the debate have tended to become too rigid. The sociocultural study of intellectual disability has mostly focused on the experiences of people with mild intellectual disabilities, extrapolating from these experiences conclusions about the nature of intellectual disability in general, while the experiences and life worlds of those whose impairments are severe, profound, and often multiple, are often ignored. Argues It is also essential for understanding, accepting and respecting people with severe and profound intellectual disabilities, and recognising that such people are already living socially meaningfully lives, despite not conforming to the dominant and socially prescribed norms and expectations of meaningful action and behaviour.

Staff working in residential, day and domiciliary settings will all encounter learning disabilities, either in their own establishment or in establishments where clients are using the services, so they need to understand what is meant by the term "learning disability" and what they can do to lessen the impact of any disability. This workshop resource is designed for use with direct care staff and others who support or are involved with people with learning disabilities. The workshop can either be run in a single day or on a modular basis, and can be used to develop training to include staff in the statutory, voluntary and private sectors. This resource can be used for staff at varying levels as it will help staff to understand the wider service structures within which their own agency is located, and to appreciate their own and each other's roles. The video pack includes sessions on such subjects as attention, perception, memory, comprehension and coping with change.
