Issue #34: Comprehensive Overview of Intellectual Disability
The December issue of NASET's Educating Children with Severe Disabilities series will cover the following topic:
Comprehensive Overview of Intellectual Disability
What is Intellectual Disability?
Intellectual Disability is a term used when a person has certain limitations in mental functioning and in skills such as communicating, taking care of him or herself, and social skills. These limitations will cause a child to learn and develop more slowly than a typical child. Children with Intellectual Disability may take longer to learn to speak, walk, and take care of their personal needs such as dressing or eating. They are likely to have trouble learning in school. They will learn, but it will take them longer. There may be some things they cannot learn.
