Regarding people's understanding of the word "developmental":

A friend of mine is working on a dissertation on teaching
metacognitive strategies to developmental readers.  The outside
reviewers have demanded that he change the word "developmental"
because they have only heard the word in the context of
"developmental psychology."  Even after he explained what
developmental education was, they still insisted on the change.
Maybe we need better publicity of our field and our educational
goals.
