Definition

Impaired intellectual (IQ below 70) and adaptive functioning manifested during the developmental period. Use a more specific term if possible. Use for both the concept of the disorder itself and for populations of mentally retarded persons. In 2000, this term replaced the discontinued and deleted term MENTALLY RETARDED. MENTALLY RETARDED was stripped from all records and replaced with MENTAL RETARDATION.
