OF MICE AND MEN BACKGROUND NOTES

WHAT ARE INTELLECTUAL AND DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES? 

The definition used most often in the U.S. is from the American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AAIDD). According to AAIDD, an IDD is a disability that occurs before age 18. It is characterized by significant limitations in intellectual functioning and adaptive behavior as

expressed in conceptual, social and practical adaptive skills. It is diagnosed through the use of standardized tests of intelligence and adaptive behavior. AAIDD points out that both functioning and adaptive behavior are affected positively by individualized supports. AAIDD, (formerly AAMR -- American Association on Mental Retardation) is the oldest and largest interdisciplinary organization of professionals and citizens concerned about intellectual and developmental disabilities.
