Greenspan on common sense/gullibility and MR/ID

Social intelligence. Social awareness. Foolish action. Common sense. Stephen Greenspan has single handedly advocated for the concept of gullibility to be the core defining feature of MR/ID within AAIDD. His terms have changed, but the concept has remained the same. Currently he is using the term common sense (lack of risk-awareness) to get at this core feature of ID.

His thinking and writings are important for all involved in Atkins cases. Thus, I was pleased to find a copy of one of his recent book chapters on this topic being available for download at his website.

Together with Switzy they have a newer paper "in preparation.". Once that is public I will feature it here at the ICDP blog.
