Sample text

We must admit that, because we are optimistic by nature and in our theoretical perspectives, we also believed that there existed some cases where a real chance for meaningful change might not be possible. However, our experience working with populations with these handicaps proved that even the barrier of severity is not insurmountable. Of course, as indicated earlier, one must have a need and a belief that the barrier can be surmounted.

She had a great need: “I came to you because I thought that you could help. You have helped so many others. I cannot accept that my child will be an idiot! ” And so she came to me year after year, several times each year, in order to receive instruction from me on how to work with her daughter. ” But the mother brought out a magnetic board with letters and the girl arranged them with one hand into words, sentences, and so on. , I could not believe my eyes!

We maintain that there is no factor that determines the status of an individual as the IQ, and it is thus very important to have a functional definition of intelligence that reflects the adaptive potential of the human individual. One’s IQ may determine what kind of occupation will be deemed suitable, what kind of wage one receives, the level and type of education that is accessible, and the type of society one will live in. We define intelligence in an entirely different way—as a force that drives the organism to change itself and to change the structure of thinking and reaction in order to answer the needs that appear before it and change before its eyes.
