Our full range of services includes everything from in-home early intervention programs for very young children and their families to leisure programs for seniors. Much of what we do goes beyond the walls of our own centers and homes and takes place in the community, where we encourage individuals with mental retardation and other developmental disabilities to live, learn, work and play. The cornerstone of our philosophy is self-determination and person-centered planning. Self-determination is a process that enables people with mental retardation and other developmental disabilities and their families to communicate their wants and needs to us so we can assist them in securing the supports they need for a better place in life in this community. Person-centered planning transfers the power of decision-making from staff to individuals and their families so they can obtain only those services and supports they need and desire and those that are feasible.

69. Genetic Causes Of Mental Retardation
GENETIC CAUSES OF mental retardation. What is genetics? Genetics is the Can a person s genes cause mental retardation? Some genetic disorders
What is genetics? Genetics is "the science that studies the principles and mechanics of heredity, or the means by which traits are passed from parents to offspring" (Glanze, 1996). Through genetics a number of specific disorders have been identified as being genetically caused. One example is fragile X syndrome, a common genetic cause of mental retardation, which is caused by the presence of a single non-working gene (called the FMR-1 gene) on a child's X chromosome. Genetics originated in the mid-19th century when Gregor Mendel discovered over a ten year period of experimenting with pea plants that certain traits are inherited. His discoveries provided the foundation for the science of genetics. Mendel's findings continue to spur the work and hopes of scientists to uncover the mystery behind how our genes work and what they can reveal to us about the possibility of having certain diseases and conditions. The scientific field of genetics can help families affected by genetic disorders to have a better understanding about heredity, what causes various genetic disorders to occur, and what possible prevention strategies can be used to decrease the incidence of genetic disorders. Can a person's genes cause mental retardation?

Brothers and Sisters of People Who Have Mental Retardation
Rick Berkobien, The Arc
The Arc's Home Page For additional information on sibling support visit the Sibling Support Project Home Page. Is having a sibling with a disability different than having a sibling who does not have a disability? Yes and no. The relationship between siblings can be a very important part of any person's life. Siblings often share the same family experiences and form a special relationship which can last throughout their lives. Children who grow up together in the same family can form a unique bond, regardless of a brother or sister having a disability. In fact, the relationship between siblings and their brother or sister with a disability can be identical to the relationship between any brother or sister. They may be close and remain so into adulthood, or they may never develop a close relationship or grow apart as they get older. Family situations and circumstances, such as divorce or even cultural differences, can also affect the way a sibling relationship develops. It's important to remember that a lot of factors affect how siblings relate to each other, and not just the fact that one of them has a disability. However, sometimes having a brother or sister with a disability in the family creates challenges that other families may not experience. Some of these challenges can directly affect the siblings.

Mental retardation
Contents of this page: Definition Mental retardation is described as below-average general intellectual function with associated deficits in adaptive behavior that occurs before age 18. Causes, incidence, and risk factors Causes of mental retardation are numerous, but a specific reason for mental retardation is determined in only 25% of the cases. Failure to adapt normally and grow intellectually may become apparent early in life or, in the case of mild retardation, not become recognizable until school age or later. An assessment of age-appropriate adaptive behaviors can be made by the use of developmental screening tests. The failure to achieve developmental milestones is suggestive of mental retardation. A family may suspect mental retardation if motor skills, language skills, and self-help skills do not seem to be developing in a child or are developing at a far slower rate than the child's peers. The degree of impairment from mental retardation has a wide range from profoundly impaired to mild or borderline retardation. Less emphasis is now placed on degree of retardation and more on the amount of intervention and care required for daily life.
