The degree of mental handicap is designated mild IQ levels of 51-70 , moderate IQ levels of 21-35 and severe IQ levels of 0-20. The IQ levels of 71-90 is designated as borderline intelligence and is not included in mental handicap. However, all levels of mentally retarded children are educable and trainable to some extent. In the general population, 2-3 percent of children have IQ below 70. About 4 per thousand of the general population are more severely handicapped with IQ below 50. Causes of Mental retardation:. Mental retardation is due to interplay of several biomedical, socio-cultural and psychological factors. It is often difficulty to incriminate only a single factor as the cause of mental retardation. Majority of the cases of mental retardation are idiopathic no cause can be identified.

Her recent paper, titled Stigma and intellectual disability: potential application of mental illness research was published in the journal Rehabilitation Psychology. We all recognized that individuals with intellectual disabilities and individuals with mental illness were consistently found to be among the most socially excluded groups and face substantial disparities related to housing, health, and employment. We used this paper to highlight this disparity by reviewing the existing research on attitudes and stigma related to intellectual disability in parallel with the stigma models that have been developed for mental illness stigma. We were interested in why stigma had not received as much attention in the intellectual disability literature and how further research on stigma toward intellectual disability ...

*  Protein regulation linked to intellectual disability - ScienceBlog.com
... Protein regulation linked to intellectual disability Oct 25, 2012. Genetics researchers at the University of Adelaide have solved a 40-year mystery for a family beset by a rare intellectual disability – and they ve discovered something new about the causes of intellectual disability in the process. While many intellectual disabilities are caused directly by a genetic mutation in the so-called protein coding part of our genes, the researchers found that in their case the answer laid outside the gene and in the regulation of proteins. Protein regulation involves the switching on or off of a protein by specific genes. The disability – which results in a lower IQ, behavioral problems such as aggression, and memory loss, and is linked with developmental delays, epilepsy, schizophrenia and other problems – affects only the male family members and can be passed on by the female family members to their children. The vast majority of intellectual ...

75–90% of the affected people have mild intellectual disability. In the next revision, the ICD-11 is expected to replace the term 'mental retardation' with either 'intellectual disability' or 'intellectual developmental disorder', which the DSM-5 already uses. Delays in oral language development Deficits in memory skills Difficulty learning social rules Difficulty with problem solving skills Delays in the development of adaptive behaviors such as self-help or self-care skills Lack of social inhibitors. People with mild intellectual disability are capable of learning reading and mathematics skills to approximately the level of a typical child aged nine to twelve. To measure adaptive behavior, professionals use structured interviews, with which they systematically elicit information about persons' functioning in the community from people who know them well. There are also many agencies and programs for parents of children with developmental disabilities. Beyond ...

... Name = Lujan–Fryns syndrome. 'Lujan–Fryns syndrome' LFS, also referred to as 'X-linked mental retardation with Marfanoid habitus' and 'Lujan syndrome',. is an X-linked genetic disorder that causes mild to moderate intellectual disability and features described as Marfanoid habitus, referring to a group of physical characteristics similar to those found in Marfan syndrome. The most common of these in LFS is an autism-like spectrum disorder, and LFS is considered as one of a number of genetic disorders associated with autism. Some features found in LFS, like agenesis of the corpus callosum and cartilage-related craniofacial anomalies, are similar to defects found in zebrafish with 'MED12' and associated mutations. Mutations in the ' UPF3B ' gene, also found on the X chromosome, are another cause of X-linked intellectual disability. Although LFS is usually suspected when intellectual disability and marfanoid habitus are observed together in a patient, the diagnosis ...

*  *‘Almost-perfect baby’ era is coming*
The Health Ministry’s genetics expert is recommending that an expensive, noninvasive blood test for pregnant women with a high risk of genetic disorders be included in the basket of health services. As a result, the fetal DNA that is present while the woman is pregnant tells the genetic story of the fetus in her uterus. The Hong Kong-born scientist speculated that it might be possible to detect fetal DNA in the blood of a pregnant woman. Joel Zlotogora, has requested that the public health basket committee include in the basket NIPT for pregnant woman at high risk of their fetus suffering from a serious genetic defect. Medical and development problems occur when there are extra or missing chromosomes. A trisomy occurs when there is an extra copy of any one chromosome, three copies instead of two. Trisomy 21, or Down syndrome, is caused by an extra copy of chromosome 21. Trisomy 18, or Edwards syndrome, is caused by an extra copy of chromosome 18 and causes severe intellectual disability, as ...

The mutation identified by Sabat and colleagues is quite rare and seems to be associated with the increased risk of developing schizophrenia by more than eight times that that of people with standard gene sequences. In a 2007 study conducted by Sebat and Michael Wigler, in CSHL, a deletion was noted in the same region in a girl affected with autism, an association has also been confirmed by other studies that have documented a higher risk of ...

In the May 8 New England Journal of Medicine online, researchers trace Gordon Holmes syndrome, a rare condition characterized by ataxia, dementia, and reproductive defects, to mutations in a ubiquitin ligase and in a deubiquitinase. That resembles the way mutations in the parkin gene, a genetic cause of familial parkinsonism, cause neurodegeneration see ARF related news story. Multiple genes implicate the ubiquitin pathway in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis see ARF related news story and Alzheimer s disease see ARF related news story.

Clinical features can include mild/moderate mental retardation with mildly dysmorphic facial features long and narrow face, short philtrum and a high nasal bridge. Of the 6 reported patients, additional features including autism, ataxia, chest-wall deformity and long, tapering fingers were found in at least two patients.

... June 10, 2014 Gene mutation discovery could explain brain disorders in children June 10, 2014 Researchers have discovered that mutations in one of the brain's key genes could be responsible for impaired mental function in children born with an intellectual disability. The research, published today in the journal, Human Molecular Genetics, proves that the gene, TUBB5, is essential for a healthy functioning brain. Lead researcher, Dr Julian Heng, from the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute ARMI at Monash University, said genetic mutations to TUBB5 could be responsible for a range of intellectual disabilities. "TUBB5 works like a type of scaffolding inside neurons, enabling them to shape their connections to other neurons, so it's essential for healthy brain development. These new findings build on the team's collaborative work with researchers in Austria, which led to the discovery of TUBB5 mutations in human brain disorders in 2012.

(1/2787) A performance-based lottery to improve residential care and training by institutional staff.

Two experiments were conducted on four units of a residential facility for the multiply-handicapped retarded in an attempt to improve daily care and training services. Experiment I compared the effects of two procedures in maintaining the work performance of attendants, using an A-B design on two units. One procedure consisted of implementing specific staff-resident assignments, the other consisted of allowing attendants who had met performance criteria to be eligible for a weekly lottery in which they could win the opportunity to rearrange their days off for the following week. Results showed that the lottery was a more effective procedure as measured by the per cent of time attendants engaged in predefined target behaviors, and by their frequency of task completion in several areas of resident care. Experiment II replicated and extended these results to the area of work quality on two additional units, using a multiple-baseline design. The performance lottery was found to be an effective econimical procedure that could be implemented by supervisory staff on a large scale.  (+info)

(2/2787) The effects of social punishment on noncompliance: a comparison with timeout and positive practice.

The effects of social punishment, positive practice, and timeout on the noncompliant behavior of four mentally retarded children were assessed in a multitreatment withdrawal design. When programmed, the experimental procedure occurred contigent on non-compliance to experimenter-issued commands. Commands were given at 55-sec intervals throughout each experimental session. The results showed (1) lower levels of noncompliance with social punishment than with the positive-practice or timeout conditions, and (2) that relatively few applications of social punishment were required to obtain this effect. The advantages of social punishment over other punishment procedures, considerations to be made before using it, and the various aspects of the procedure that contribute to its effectiveness were discussed.  (+info)

(3/2787) A new X linked neurodegenerative syndrome with mental retardation, blindness, convulsions, spasticity, mild hypomyelination, and early death maps to the pericentromeric region.

We report on a family with an X linked neurodegenerative disorder consisting of mental retardation, blindness, convulsions, spasticity, and early death. Neuropathological examination showed mild hypomyelination. By linkage analysis, the underlying genetic defect could be assigned to the pericentromeric region of the X chromosome with a maximum lod score of 3.30 at theta=0.0 for the DXS1204 locus with DXS337 and PGK1P1 as flanking markers.  (+info)

(4/2787) Insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) and autoimmune thyroiditis in a boy with a ring chromosome 18: additional evidence of autoimmunity or IDDM gene(s) on chromosome 18.

A 4 year 3 month old boy with insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM), autoimmune thyroiditis, slight mental retardation, facial dysmorphism, and a de novo ring chromosome 18 (deletion 18q22.3-18qter) is described. This unique association of defects could represent a chance association. Alternatively, the clinical features could be the result of the chromosomal aberration. If so, one could speculate that a gene or genes on chromosome 18 might act as a suppressor or activator of the autoimmune process by itself or in concert with other IDDM loci.  (+info)

(5/2787) Dilemmas in counselling females with the fragile X syndrome.

The dilemmas in counselling a mildly retarded female with the fragile X syndrome and her retarded partner are presented. The fragile X syndrome is an X linked mental retardation disorder that affects males and, often less severely, females. Affected females have an increased risk of having affected offspring. The counselling of this couple was complicated by their impaired comprehension which subsequently impaired their thinking on the different options. The woman became pregnant and underwent CVS, which showed an affected male fetus. The pregnancy was terminated. Whether nondirective counselling for this couple was the appropriate method is discussed and the importance of a system oriented approach, through involving relatives, is stressed.  (+info)

(6/2787) The Dyggve-Melchior-Clausen syndrome.

Two new cases of Dyggve-Melchior-Clausen syndrome are described; they belong to the fourth family from Lebanon in which this disease has been recognized. There is no genealogical linkage between these four families. A particular feature in these cases is a striking rhizomelic shortness of the arms especially in one case. Clinical and radiological findings, progression of the skeletal changes are studied, along with the review of the cases in the literature. Cytological and biochemical data indicate that the DMC syndrome is not a mucopolysaccharidosis.  (+info)

(7/2787) Quantitative morphological studies of developing human cerebellar cortex in various disease states.

A quantitative morphological assessment was carried out of the cellularity and staining properties of the cells of the layers of the human cerebellar cortex, both in the normal child and in 41 children suffering from a series of disorders including mental retardation. A computerized image analyser and highly standardized procedures were used. All of the cases of mental retardation and some cases with congenital cardiac anomalies showed abnormal cell concentrations and staining properties. 3 cases of 'cot death' also showed abnormal results. These findings are presented as a new measurable aspect of brain disease, and as a indication for further study.  (+info)

(8/2787) Severe mental retardation in a boy with partial trisomy 10q and partial monosomy 2q.

A severely mentally subnormal child with many physical stigmata was shown to have the karyotype 46,XY,-2,+der(2),t(2;10)(q31;q24)pat. Full evaluation of this patient's karyotype depended on the family studies. It was shown that a balanced translocation t(2,10) was present in 4 normal males in 3 generations.  (+info)
