Guidelines & Safety
Levels of intellectual disability vary greatly in individuals from a very slight problem to a very severe problem.

People with intellectual disability might have a hard time letting others know their wants and needs, and taking care of themselves.

Intellectual disability could cause a child to learn and develop more slowly than other children of the same age.

It could take longer for a child with intellectual disability to learn to speak, walk, dress, or eat without help, and they could have trouble learning in school.

discipline to stay on task despite distractions (focus; practice)

Working Memory
: problem-solving, reasoning, planning (creativity; play)

Cognitive Flexibility
: change course, change opinion (construct thinking; creativity)

**work together to coordinate mental activity & take charge of actions

**different than intelligence (as we know it)

**associated with prefrontal cortex behavior

**as we develop, these function become more sophisticated to help w/ higher order thinking and planning

abstract thought about "fitness" or health

Also requires motivation and reinforcement
Rather than think about 'not thinking' rely on how to improve thinking via attention, memory, and flexible thinking
