News on Intellectual Disabilities - January to June 2012

Intellectual-Disability News 2013 >

In the first half of 2012, I blogged about a book for tween girls on staying safe, advice for dealing with an R-word-slinging principal, an apology for the Rivera family, and alternatives for the R-word. Other news stories on intellectual disabilities featured in Today's News and Views in the first five months of 2011 came from the following sites and blogs:

+ The Case of Amelia Rivera

Disability Scoop
+ DSM Committee Takes Heat Over 'Mental Retardation' Update
+ Senators Urge Move Away From 'Mental Retardation'

Special Olympics Blog
+ “Not Acceptable” PSA Wins Fearless Video Award
