Author(s): Manoj Kumar and Tanuja Rawal

Abstract: In the last few years, many important changes have taken place in the field of disability and continuous improvement is being brought in this area so that the persons with disabilities can be benefited at the physical, mental, social, educational and economic level. According to the RPWD Act 2016, there are 21 disabilities out of which one of the significant disabilities is intellectual disability (mental retardation) which is found in large numbers in the country. According to the Census of India-2011, the number of persons with intellectual disabilities was 1505964. To help such a large number of people, it is most important to understand their problems. A person with intellectual disability has to face many problems at the physical, mental, social, educational and economic level. The main reason for this could be their limitation in functioning, maladaptive behavior and lack of social adjustment. In addition to these issues, students with intellectual disabilities face learning difficulties that negatively affect their ability to learn in a specific educational setting. So we need to understand the educational considerations to reduce the impact of such issues.
