Intellectual Disability

Intellectual disability means "significantly sub-average general intellectual functioning, existing concurrently with deficits in adaptive skills, that is manifested during the developmental period, and that adversely affects a student's educational performance." Adaptive skills that are assessed in the person's typical environment (e.g., school, home) and across all aspects of his or her life are those daily living skills needed to live, work, and play in the community. They include communication, self-care, home living, social skills, leisure, health and safety, self-direction, functional academics (reading, writing, basic math), community living, and work. A student with limits in intellectual functioning who does not have limits in adaptive skill areas may not be diagnosed as having intellectual disability.
