Abstract

It is argued that normalization and applied behaviour analysis represent the most significant developments of the past two decades in approaches to the design of services for people with learning difficulties. Problems in translating these approaches into practice have been compounded by an apparent conflict between them. The nature of this conflict is examined and suggestions for a rapprochement are made.
