Intellectual disability disorder (ID) is generally characterized as a deficit in a person’s mental ability. These deficits are wide-ranging, from reasoning and judgment to experiential learning and adaptive functioning. The struggle to meet such developmental standards affects one’s ability to cultivate appropriate social responsibility and personal independence.
