A clinical condition in which the individual's level of intellectual functioning is within the IQ range of 50-70. Individuals with mild intellectual disabilities develop social and communication skills during the preschool period, have minimal impairment in sensorimotor areas, and often are not distinguishable from other children until a later age when the child enters school and begins to experience academic difficulties. By late teens, people with mild intellectual disabilities can learn academic skills up to approximately the sixth grade level; and during the adult years, they can usually achieve social and vocational skills that are adequate for minimum self-support, but may need guidance and assistance when under unusual social or economic stress.
