Intellectual disability (InD) is a disability that occurs before age 18. InD is characterized by deficits in two areas: 1) intellectual functioning and 2) adaptive behavior. These deficit areas can manifest in a variety of ways including difficulty with conceptual, social and practical everyday living skills. Students with an InD may receive services through Exceptional Student Education in a variety of settings as the full continuum of services is available.
