Intellectual Difficulties

Always There To Care

Is your child having difficulties using words and communicating? Is your child not responsive to prompts? Does your child seem vague and in their own little world?

 

If you have answered yes to these questions, your child may have an Intellectual disability.

 

What is an Intellectual Difficulty?

 

About 3% of Australians have an intellectual difficulty1. An intellectual difficulty is a general term used to describe a diagnosis of intellectual functioning with an IQ below 70 (the average IQ is 100) and significant difficulty with daily functioning such as ability to self care, communication and socialisation.
