Intellectual Disability

Intellectual Disability is defined by deficiencies in general mental abilities that impact two areas from functioning:

  • cognitive performance (such as learning, problem solving, judgement)
  • the ability to adapt (activities of daily life such as communication and independent living)

Men are more likely to develop an Intellectual Disability over women. This affects about 1 percent of the worlds population and out of that 1 percent, 85 percent of them have a mild Intellectual Disability.
