What are the differences between 'intellectual disability' and 'mental retardation'?
A learning disability and an intellectual disability are two distinctly separate conditions. People who have a learning disability generally have average or above-average IQ scoring. A learning disability is a neurological disorder that affects the brain's communication channels - its ability to receive, process, store and respond to information. Alternative learning strategies can be used to support people who have a learning disability to more effectively process received information. Learning disabilities and their effects are different from person to person, so a person's pattern of learning abilities need to be understood in order to find good, effective strategies for compensation. People who have an intellectual disability (also referred to as a developmental disability) have below-average IQ scoring. An intellectual disability is typically a result of a genetic condition, complications during birth or an acquired brain injury prior to the age of 16 or 18. This impact's the person's ability to learn and develop at the same pace as their non-disabled peers. An intellectual disability can have limitations on one's ability to function in areas of daily life, such as communication, self-care, and getting along in social situations and learning activities. Depending on one's ability, these limitations may require life-long support.

Can you be fired for going on disability in NJ?
There are two law that provide job security during your leave for disability: the FMLA provides twelve weeks of unpaid leave for your disability. NJ has a separate law, but it provides leave for you to care for a sick family member - not your own disability. Your employer does not have to hold your job open if FMLA does not apply, or if your leave extends beyond 12 weeks.
Asked in Insurance
What type of insurance is designed to cover the costs of help for daily living activities?
You may be referring to disability insurance, which can be either short-term disability, to cover your short-term lost wages of a broken foot or other illness. You may also choose to buy long-term disability, which will provide a payment to you until you are of retirement age if you would become disabled for life, such as losing a limb or developing a chronic condition. Long-term care insurance can provide some coverage of home health care or full-time care in a nursing home or supervised living environment.
Asked in Health, Mental Health, Dementia
Why is it important to view dementia as a disability?
To ensure that as health and social care workers we adapt the environment etc to the person with the disability rather than the other way around. If someone has a physical disability we alter their environment, such as, providing a lift or a ramp, so that the person can function in a 'normal' way. If we see dementia in a similar way we realise that we need to adapt our care provision to suit their needs not change them and their behaviour to suit the setting e.g. of the care home etc. Kirst

Asked in Oral Health and Dental Care, Dentists
Is it legal for a dentist to refuse service to someone that has a disability?
If the dentist can demonstrate that he/she is not qualified to provide the proper service needed by someone with a particular disability, it is legal. For example, if a person required sedation, and the dentist was not trained in sedation, he could refer the patient to someone that was qualified. If the patient required care be provided in a hospital setting, and the dentist did not have hospital privileges, he could refuse. On the other hand, if the patient simply arrives in a wheelchair, the dentist cannot refuse to treat on that basis alone. All dental offices are required by the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) to be wheelchair accessible.
