Mollie Woods, Woodlands, Brian’s House, and Crestwood are programs at Woods Services that provide residential, educational, therapeutic, health, and vocational support and services to individuals with intellectual disabilities.
Intellectual disability is characterized by a significantly below-average score on a test of intelligence. It is also characterized by limitations in the ability to function in areas of daily life, such as communication, self-care, and getting along in social situations and school activities. Intellectual disability is sometimes referred to as a cognitive disability, developmental disability, or mental retardation.
Children with intellectual disability can learn new skills, but they develop more slowly than children with average intelligence. There are different degrees of intellectual disability, ranging from mild to profound. A person's level of intellectual disability can be defined by their intelligence quotient (IQ), or by the types and amount of support they need.
People with intellectual disability may also have other disabilities. Examples of these coexisting conditions include emotional disturbance, cerebral palsy, seizure disorders, vision impairment, hearing loss, and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
