Intellectual disabilities range from simple learning or attentional deficits to severely reduced functional participation in activities of daily living. The intellectual disability may be related to a genetic syndrome, which may also that affect the physical, medical, behavioral, and social components of an individual’s life.

These individuals benefit from early intervention, but may receive continued supports throughout childhood and adulthood.
