Intellectual disability is a problem identified prior to age 18 that consists of below-average intellectual function and an absence of skills essential for day-to-day living. In the past, the term dementia was used to explain this condition. Intellectual disability impacts about 1% to 3% of the population. There are many sources of intellectual disability, however physicians find a specific reason in only 25% of cases.
