The term mental retardation is often misunderstood and seen as derogatory. The term mental retardation is often misunderstood and seen as derogatory.
C HILDREN W HO A RE M ENTALLY R ETARDED No. 23 (Updated 8/99) The term "mental retardation" is often misunderstood and seen as derogatory. Some think that retardation is diagnosed only on the basis of below-normal intelligence (IQ), and that persons with mental retardation are unable to learn or to care for themselves. Actually, in order to be diagnosed as a person with mental retardation, the person has to have both significantly low IQ and considerable problems in adapting to everyday life. However, most children with mental retardation can learn a great deal, and as adults can lead at least partially independent lives. Most importantly, they can enjoy their lives just as everyone else. In the past, parents were usually advised to institutionalize a child with significant mental retardation. This is not done anymore. The goal now is for the child with mental retardation to stay in the family and take part in community life. In most states, the law guarantees them educational and other services at public expense. Mental retardation may be complicated by physical and emotional problems. The child may also have difficulty with hearing, sight or speech. All these problems can lower the child's potential.

Florida's Voice on Mental Retardationis a statewide organization of family and frie nds of persons with mental retardation
Florida's Voice on Mental Retardation, Inc. (FVMR), incorporated in Florida in March 1995, is a statewide all volunteer, non-profit organization comprised of family and friends of persons with mental retardation and related developmental disabilities. FVMR advocates for a full continuum of educational, medical, programmatic, recreational, residential, therapeutic, and vocational options based upon individual needs and choices. Membership or Donation Form, click here! Resources FVMR offers family members and friends support services and research materials, while also advocating on behalf of persons with mental retardation, particularly those whose conditions are so severe that they cannot speak for themselves. FVMR members recognize that the vast majority of persons with mental retardation are mildly retarded and, therefore, are frequently employable and educable. However, those who are severely and profoundly retarded typically require much more intensive, and therefore, costlier services. Recognizing that the more extensive the services, the more cost involved, FVMR members advocate a full array of services in the most cost effective manner possible - community programs, family home care, group homes, and larger centers (over 6 beds) for only the most severely mentally retarded and developmentally disabled.

NCBDDD Home Mental Retardation What Is Mental Retardation? How Common Is It? ... Click here to contact the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities. What is mental retardation? Mental retardation is characterized both by a significantly below-average score on a test of mental ability or intelligence and by limitations in the ability to function in areas of daily life, such as communication, self-care, and getting along in social situations and school activities. Mental retardation is sometimes referred to as a cognitive or intellectual disability. Children with mental retardation can and do learn new skills, but they develop more slowly than children with average intelligence and adaptive skills. There are different degrees of mental retardation, ranging from mild to profound. A person's level of mental retardation can be defined by their intelligence quotient (IQ), or by the types and amount of support they need. People with mental retardation may have other disabilities as well. Examples of these coexisting conditions include cerebral palsy, seizure disorders, vision impairment, hearing loss, and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Children with severe mental retardation are more likely to have additional disabilities than are children with mild mental retardation. [
