Abstract

Jack Tizard (1919–79) pioneered the scientific analysis of learning disabilities in the decades following the end of the Second World War. This article provides an overview of his work and critically assesses his contribution, identifying key elements of his analysis. It looks at the Tizard methodology and, in particular, the philosophy of science he utilised in light of more recent approaches. The article sets the historical context for the study of subsequent developments in learning disabilities.
