Intellectual disability is a term used when a person has limitations in mental functioning and in skills such as communicating, self-help, and social skills. Children and adults with intellectual disabilities may need occupational or physical therapies, supervision, and accommodations to help them succeed.

A diagnosis of intellectual disability may help you access services and support programs such as:

  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
  • Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
  • Medicaid HCBS Waiver
  • Placement in an intermediate care facility for those with developmental disabilities
  • Supported employment services
  • Supported living services
  • Consumer Directed Care Plus (CDC+)
  • IFS (Individual and Family Supports)
