What is I/DD?

 

Intellectual and developmental disabilities, or I/DD are disorders that begin in childhood. They have many causes and symptoms. Intellectual disabilities are disorders that involve the following...

  • Intellectual functioning. Also known as IQ, this refers to a person’s ability to learn, reason, make decisions, and solve problems.

  • Adaptive behaviors. These are skills necessary for day-to-day life, such as being able to communicate effectively, interact with others, and take care of oneself.
