I thank Robert Hodapp, PhD, for his very helpful comments on a previous version of this article, as well as Martin E. P. Seligman, PhD, and Elizabeth Roof, MA, for their enthusiastic responses to a draft of the manuscript. I appreciate all that I have learned about mental retardation from affected individuals and their families, and from Donald Cohen, MD, Ed Zigler, PhD, James Leckman, MD, and Beth Rosner, PhD. I am very grateful for learning about positive psychology from a class taught by Marty Seligman.
