Mental retardation is characterized both by a significantly below average score on a test of mental ability or intelligence and by limitation in the ability to function in areas of daily life, such as communication, self-care, and getting along in social situations and school activities. Mental retardation is sometimes referred to as a cognitive or intellectual disability.

People with mental retardation may have other disabilities as well. Examples of these coexisting conditions include cerebral palsy, seizure disorders, vision impairment, hearing loss and attention-deficit/ hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Children with severe mental retardation are more likely to have additional disabilities that are to the children with a mild mind.

Causes- Mental retardation can start any time before a child reaches the age of 18 years. It can be caused by injury, disease, or a brain abnormality. Some of the most common known causes of mental retardation are Down syndrome.
