If you think labelling people as having learning difficulties is 
helpful try listening to a recent Radio 4 BBC discussion

http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/radio4_aod.shtml?youandyours

"the International Paralympic Committee has ruled that only people with 
physical disabilities can compete in Athens next year. "
People with learning difficulties have been excluded because it has not 
been possible to agree on a definition.
