Scientific progress (if one can still talk about ‘progress’ in these post-modern days) does not proceed in an orderly incremental fashion. Rather, science is characterised by periods of stagnation alternating with rapid growth arising from the introduction of new ideas or (often more importantly) new technologies. A quiet revolution is currently underway in the field of genetics which, sooner or later, is likely to have a significant impact on services for people with learning disabilities.
