Abstract

Intellectual disability is discussed in terms of both characteristics inherent in the individual and a state determined by the interaction of the individual with their environment. Criticisms of psychometric and etiological categorisation are given. It is proposed that the process of habilitation be best served by a focus on the development of the person's skills of adaptive behaviour. Furthermore, the principles of Social Role Valorization (S.R.V.) as they are applied to the development of supported employment options are proposed as a means of remediating the effects of intellectual disability, by fostering the development of adaptive skills. It is argued that the principles of S.R.V. can be effectively applied in the development of institutional services as well as in community-based settings, and that they are applicable to the development of services for people with even severe degrees of intellectual disability.
