Intellectual disability is the term used for the physical or mental impairment that is so severe that a person cannot perform an essential function of daily living, such as thinking, learning, remembering, speaking, or reasoning.
Some people with intellectual disability are disabled because of genetic disorders, such the rare genetic condition Dravet syndrome.
Other people with disability have special learning difficulties or disabilities that prevent them from learning normally.
These disabilities are not the same as intellectual disability.
People with intellectual disabilities are generally unable to engage in everyday activities, such working, socialising, and doing tasks.
Some may be limited in some ways by a genetic disorder or other disability.
The ability to engage socially, with others, or engage in certain activities may be a defining characteristic of intellectual disability, as opposed to intellectual disability as defined in the law.
A person with intellectual disabled can have intellectual disabilities, such learning difficulties, learning difficulties associated with a genetic condition, or learning difficulties that are not specific to intellectual disabilities.
People can be classified as intellectually disabled if they have significant intellectual disabilities that impair their ability to do everyday activities such as working, attending school, attending church, or using computers or other forms of technology.
The person can also have a mental disability that causes a person to have limited intellectual ability.
People who have mental disabilities may be classified by their medical condition.
If a person has a medical condition that causes intellectual disability but has a mental condition that does not, the person is considered to be intellectually disabled.
Some conditions that affect the ability to perform everyday activities include: dementia (dementia with dementia) , a person with dementia with a physical or intellectual disability; learning disabilities (learning difficulties that affect a person’s ability to function in daily life, such that a child is unable to do basic tasks such as going to school or studying) , mental retardation, a person who is too young to understand basic concepts or do the same things that a normal child would do, and developmental disabilities, which impair a person, such a person is too old to understand normal tasks.
Intellectual disability can be associated with other mental disorders.
Mental disorders that are also associated with intellectual or intellectual disabilities include: obsessive-compulsive disorder, obsessive-hyperactivity disorder, and conduct disorder, including conduct disorder (including bipolar disorder) , and substance abuse disorders, including alcohol abuse, cocaine abuse, or other drug abuse.
Some of the common mental disorders associated with disability include: anxiety disorder, panic disorder, phobia, social phobia , depression, and bipolar disorder.
People whose intellectual disabilities cause them to be too sensitive or easily offended may not be able to understand other people’s feelings, may be unable to participate in social situations, and may not participate in sports or other activities that involve social interaction.
For example, some people with learning disabilities are afraid of getting too close to others.
Other types of intellectual disabilities may result in limitations on the person’s communication, including communication difficulties, communication difficulties associated to a genetic disease, or communication difficulties that do not cause the person to be able or willing to communicate.
People may also be classified if they cannot complete a task because of a disability, such an impairment, or a medical problem.
For instance, someone with learning disability may be able only to do a basic task, but they cannot perform the tasks that are essential for life, like cooking, cleaning, and caring for a child.
Some intellectual disabilities affect people’s ability or ability to learn and remember, and some of the cognitive abilities that are affected include: visual-spatial and temporal skills, including the ability for people to distinguish between the real world and the imagined world, the ability with which one can identify objects, and the ability that one can comprehend and remember a text or other information.
Some other abilities that people with physical or emotional disabilities may have are: motor coordination, including ability to maintain balance, the capacity to walk and stand upright, the dexterity to pick up, and to use tools to make things, and flexibility.
For some people, the most important skills are those associated with thinking, understanding, and communicating.
Other skills are often necessary for certain activities, for example, those that require the ability not only to understand but also to explain, for instance, how to make an appointment.
Some disabilities affect the way the person communicates with others.
People’s ability in some areas of life can be impaired if they: have learning difficulties in certain areas, such being able to think clearly or to understand a text well, being able, for one or more reasons, to understand, interpret, or convey information that others do not understand, or having difficulties with social interaction, including difficulties with communicating with others and understanding the intentions and goals of others.
For the most part, people with a disability do not have to be socially awkward or to appear to be disabled.
People are usually able to be accepted and accepted, even by others.
They can participate in activities that are socially
