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. It is very important that the child has a comprehensive evaluation to find out about his or her difficulties, as well as strengths. Since no specialist has all the necessary skills, many professionals might be involved. General medical tests as well as tests in areas such as neurology (the nervous system), psychology, psychiatry, special education, hearing, speech and vision, and physical therapy are useful. A pediatrician or a child and adolescent psychiatrist often coordinates these tests.

Death Penalty Facts
MENTAL RETARDATION The Death Penalty has not spared those with mental retardation. In May 1989, the UN Economic and Social Council adopted by consensus a resolution that recommended "eliminating the death penalty for persons suffering from mental retardation or extremely limited mental competence, whether at the stage of sentence or execution." In 1997, the UN Commission on Human Rights passed a resolution calling on states to consider abolishing the death penalty and urging those states that still retain the death penalty to refrain from imposing it on people with mental retardation. In 1998, the Special Rapporteur on Extrajudicial, Summary or Arbitrary Executions criticized the US for executing people with mental retardation "in contravention of relevant internationals standards."

The Division of Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities (MRDD), established in 1974, serves a population that has developmental disabilities such as mental retardation, cerebral palsy, head injuries, autism, epilepsy, and certain learning disabilities. Such conditions must have occurred before age 22, with the expectation that they will continue. To be eligible for services from the division, persons with these disabilities must be substantially limited in their ability to function independently.
The division improves the lives of persons with developmental disabilities through programs and services to enable those persons to live independently and productively. In 1988, the division began participation in the Medicaid home and community-based waiver program, designed to help expand needed services throughout the state.
The division operates 17 facilities that provide or purchase specialized services. Eleven regional centers form the framework for the system, backed by six habilitation centers, which provide residential care and habilitation services for more severely disabled persons.

Welcome to Community Services Group
