Intellectual disability is a complex condition that affects more than 30% of people worldwide.
There are several different definitions of the condition, and many people with it don’t understand the difference between disability and cognitive impairment.
It’s the disability that causes you to be unable to engage in everyday activities and to have limited opportunities for socialization.
This is not a disability that you can fix by simply getting a new physical disability rating, but it can be prevented.
To prevent cognitive impairment, people with intellectual disability have to work harder and be more selective about their activities and social interactions.
And to reduce cognitive impairment and intellectual disability, many experts recommend people with a disability have at least one other impairment that affects their daily life.
But what is intellectual disability?
The term intellectual disability is derived from a medical term for intellectual impairment that can occur when a person is not functioning normally due to an underlying medical condition.
Some people with the condition can still function normally, but others need additional help with their social and occupational functioning.
To qualify for intellectual disability insurance, a person needs to be able to function normally for a period of at least two months, have a disability rating of 1.5 or more, have significant impairment in their ability to communicate, read, write, and understand basic instructions, and have limited social interaction.
The condition may affect more than one part of a person’s body.
For example, people who have a mild intellectual disability may have some difficulty in learning to read and write.
But people with moderate or severe intellectual disability might have difficulty in reading and writing, while people with severe intellectual or physical disabilities might have trouble in any of the following activities: driving a car, operating machinery, reading, or working in a factory or a factory setting.
A person with intellectual or intellectual disability can be diagnosed with a specific disability, or a broader condition that includes intellectual and cognitive impairments.
