Intellectual Disability

Intellectual Disability

Intellectual Disability, a developmental disorder, is marked by considerable limitations in cognitive functioning and adaptive behaviors that impact daily life activities. Previously known as mental retardation, this condition is typically identified during childhood and involves notable deficits in intellectual and adaptive functioning.

Those with intellectual disabilities may face challenges in learning, problem-solving, communication, and daily living skills. Furthermore, they might have difficulties developing social skills and forming and maintaining relationships with others.

Addressing intellectual disability often involves a blend of educational, therapeutic, and support services aimed at helping individuals reach their full potential and enhance their quality of life. These interventions can include specialized education programs, vocational training, and counseling or therapy to tackle any related mental health issues.

It is essential to acknowledge that intellectual disability is a lifelong condition, and people affected by it will likely need continuous support and resources throughout their lives.

We've found that people are more likely to proceed with therapy after a free consultation, as it lowers the barrier to starting the process.
