By: Race, D.G.
Series: Disability & Society 14 (4) 1999: 519 -538.Publisher: 1999Subject(s): UNITED KINGDOM | SOCIAL ROLE VALORISATION | NORMALISATION | SERVICE PROVISION | INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY | LEARNING DISABILITYSummary: The relative roles of academic thinking and ideas, the particular set of ideas called normalisation, and other influences on services for people with learning disabilities are discussed. The paper argues that in the sixties and seventies the relatively small number of academics in the field dominated the thinking about services, but not services themselves. The development of the teaching of normalisation in the eighties is argued to have had a greater effect on services, though not on academic thinking, whose influence is, in any case, seen to be in decline.
