An intellectual disorder, previously known as intellectual developmental disorder or mental retardation, is characterized by below-average intellectual function and limitations in adaptive behavior, appearing before the age of 18.

Intellectual disorders affect overall cognitive functioning and adaptive behaviors, while learning disabilities are specific challenges in areas like reading, writing, or math, without a broader cognitive impact.

Causes can be varied and include genetic conditions (like Down syndrome), prenatal exposure to substances, infections during pregnancy, birth complications, or environmental factors in early childhood.

Some risk factors like exposure to certain infections, malnutrition, or harmful substances during pregnancy can be preventable. Early intervention, prenatal care, and avoiding certain substances during pregnancy can reduce risks.

Signs can include delays in reaching developmental milestones, challenges with problem-solving, difficulties in social interactions, struggles with academic tasks, and trouble with adaptive skills like self-care.
