Mental Retardation : from knowledge to action



What is Mental Retardation?

What happens when the brain fails to mature and grow ?

Naturally, such babies fail to develop and acquire milestones like normal children. These conditions, in which there is a significant deficit or delay in the development of various mental functions from early childhood, are called developmental disabilities.

One can recognize different types of developmental disabilities, depending on what function or functions are affected and how extensive is the limitation.

Mental Retardation: This is a condition in which there is delay or deficiency in all aspects of development, i.e. there is global and noticeable deficiency in the development of motor, cognitive, social, and language functions. This is the commonest form of developmental disability. In many ways, mental retardation is also representative of developmental disabilities in general, in its causation, nature, and care.
