Level of Impairment

Level of Impairment

There are four degrees of impairment—mild, moderate, severe and profound—with mild and moderate levels being the most common. The types of skills an individual will be able to learn and his/her proficiency at that skill is directly related to the level of impairment. 

 

Degrees of intellectual disability

 

However, because each person is unique, they may exhibit aptitudes and deficits within the range of a given level of impairment that are different from someone else who was also diagnosed with that same degree of impairment. The majority of the adults served by Langley have mild to moderate intellectual disabilities.
