Intellectual Disability (formerly known as mental retardation)
Characterized by significant limitations both in intellectual functioning (IQ <70-75) and in adaptive behavior, which covers many everyday social and practical skills; originates before age 22 (American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities [AAIDD])
It is no longer defined by IQ alone, rather IQ is only part of the evaluation
Intellectual disability can have many and varied etiologies, including
Examples: Infection or injury
Examples: Down syndrome or microdeletion syndrome
Molecular / Single Gene Disorder
Example: Fragile X syndrome
As an adult, able to reason, solve problems, think abstractly, comprehend complex ideas, and learn from experience
Learning, not intellectual, disability
As an adult, able to learn/understand complex information, but may require nontraditional teaching approaches
Borderline intellectual disability
As an adult, able to learn/understand simplified information and probably able to live independently
Low normal IQ 75-85
Mild intellectual disability
As an adult, able to participate in most family activities and perform many independent tasks, but likely to need supervision similar to a middle school individual
Communication, conversation, and language are more concrete and immature than expected
Moderate intellectual disability
As an adult, able to participate in most family activities but likely to need supervision similar to a grade school person
Marked differences in conceptual skills
Severe intellectual disability
As an adult, attainment of conceptual skills is limited
Skills are similar to a toddler/preschool person (< 5-6 year old) requiring care and supervision accordingly
Profound intellectual disability
As an adult, very limited understanding of symbolic communication in speech or gesture
Skills are similar to an infant/toddler requiring care and supervision accordingly; dependent on others for all aspects of daily physical care, health, and safety
