Disability Benefits for Intellectual Disability
Social Security Disability Lawyers
Do you suffer from an Intellectual Disability?
An intellectual disability is a condition that is diagnosed before age 18 and is demonstrated by limitations in mental functioning, communication, and social skills. A diagnosis might be made if your IQ test score is below 70 and you have difficulty with activities of daily living, communication, and socialization. Intellectual disabilities may vary in severity, and can range from having a few mild deficits to being profoundly impaired.
Social Security looks at how the disability affects your mental capacity to perform work-related activities on a continuing basis. Social Security is required to consider the nature and extent of your intellectual disability, and how this condition restricts your ability to carry out activities of daily living, maintain social functioning, and maintain concentration, persistence, and pace in a competitive work environment. Social Security will also assess whether you are able to make simple work-related judgments, adapt to changes in your work setting, and handle work pressures.
