Mild Mental Retardation

Mild mental retardation, also know as mild intellectual disability, is a condition in which a person possesses mild cognitive and neuromuscular deficits that cause some interference with learning, physical coordination, or social skills. This can be the result of genetic or hereditary factors. People who are affected by a mild intellectual disability can be educated and can be trained to work at vocations but need more practice and repetition. They can successfully learn reading, writing, and math skills but may reach developmental milestones later than average children.
