Who Was Jack Tizard

Psychologist Jack Tizard was a New Zealander who spent most of his professional life in England.

He worked at the boundaries of psychology, medicine, education and social sciences along with alternatives to institutional care in the nineteen-fifties and sixties, which underpinned the subsequent development of ‘ordinary life’ models for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. His approach was characterised by a commitment to using high research standards to address important social problems, ensuring through his extensive advisory activities that the results of research were available to practitioners and policy-makers.
