Intellectual disability is characterised by
impairment in cognition (intellect) and difficulties in day-to-day life
skills. It is fixed and lifelong, although with the right support most
people with intellectual disability can lead active and fulfilling
lives, writes Dr Rory Sheehan (UCL Psychiatry) in The Conversation.
