Do you suffer from mental retardation?
Mental retardation is a condition that is diagnosed before age 18, and is demonstrated by mental functioning, communication, and social skill limitations. A diagnosis might be made if your IQ test score is below 70%, and you have difficulties with activities of daily living, communication, and socialization. Mental retardation may vary in its severity, and can range from profoundly impaired or borderline retardation.
Social Security looks at how mental retardation affects your maximum mental ability to perform work-related activities on a continuing basis. Social Security is required to consider the nature and extent of your mental retardation, and how this condition restricts your ability to carry out activities of daily living, your ability to maintain social functioning, and your ability to maintain concentration, persistence, or pace in a competitive work environment. Social Security will also assess whether you are able to make simple work-related judgments, your ability to adapt to changes in your work setting, and your ability to handle work pressures.
