What is Adaptive Behavior?

Introduction

Many time parents of children with intellectual and developmental disabilities (new term for mental retardation) do not have a clear understanding of what is meant by adaptive behavior especially since it is one of the major factors used in the identification of this disability. This Parent Teacher Conference Handout will provide an overview for parents in helping them understand this term.
