SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY
A child who has an intellectual disability may reach certain milestones of development later than children who are not similarly affected. For example, a child may stand and walk later than other children of the same age, be unable to see the consequences of actions, lack curiosity, display infant-like behavior past the age of infancy, and have difficulty in school.

Other indicators of intellectual disability may include:

Deficits in memory skills
Delays in oral language development
Delays in developing adaptive behaviors such as self-care or self-help
Difficulty learning social rules
Difficulty with problem-solving skills
A lack of social inhibitors

THERAPY AND SUPPORT

Individuals challenged with an intellectual disability often have a variety of options for help and support available to them. While intellectual disabilities cannot be cured and there are no specific medications to treat their effects.

The services that can be of benefit to people with intellectual disabilities include residential homes, day rehabilitation programs, and workshops that can help individuals obtain jobs and homes and connect with members of the community. Specific Psychotherapeutic programs also provide a way for those challenged with intellectual disabilities to learn basic life skills and set and achieve life goals while learning to obtain independence.
