Mental retardation (say: ree-tar-day-shun) is a term that was once commonly used to describe someone who learns and develops more slowly than others.
Instead, you might hear terms like "intellectual disability" or "developmental delay." Someone who has this kind of problem will have trouble learning and functioning in everyday life. This person could be 10 years old, but might not talk or write as well as a typical 10-year-old. He or she also is usually slower to learn other skills, like how to get dressed or how to act around other people.
But having an intellectual disability doesn't mean a person can't learn. Ask anyone who knows and loves a person with an intellectual disability!
An intellectual disability can be mild (smaller) or major (bigger). The bigger the disability the more difficult someone will have learning and becoming an independent person.
