Mild Mental RetardationTweet
People with mild mental retardation account for about 85% of people with mental retardation. Usually their appearance is unremarkable and any sensory or motor deficits are slight.
Most people in this group develop more or less normal language abilities and social behavior during the pre-school years, and their learning disability may never be formally identified.
In adult life, most people with learning disability can live independently in ordinary surroundings, though they may need help in coping with family responsibilities, housing, and employment, or when under unusual stress.
