Abstract

Changes in service provision for people with a learning disability over the years have been accompanied by changes in terminology. Terms such as ‘idiot’, ‘imbecile’ and ‘subnormal’ were used in the past to refer to what we now call a learning disability. Traditional classifications have served to emphasise a deviance from the ‘norm’ (Clegg 1993) and no longer fit with the philosophy of care in the community.
