Targeted Next Generation Sequencing and Intellectual Disability

The purpose is to determine the benefit of next generation sequencing (NGS) targeted on genes involved in intellectual disability for etiologic diagnosis of intellectual disabilities. In o...

Various Type of Genetic Events in Patients With Intellectual Disability

Currently, for a patient with intellectual disability without a recognizable syndrome (most cases), the way to diagnosis is often long, tedious and expensive because different approaches a...

Prevention Among Young People With Intellectual Disability

This study aims to evaluate an intervention using the Toolkit "Children - what does it involve?" and the "Real-Care-Baby" (RCB) simulator among students with intellectual disability (ID), ...

The VetSeq Study: a Pilot Study of Genome Sequencing in Veteran Care

The VetSeq Study is a pilot intervention study exploring the feasibility of integrating genome sequencing into clinical care at the VA Boston Healthcare System.

Rapid Whole Genome Sequencing Study

Rapid Whole Genome Sequencing (rWGS) has proven to provide much faster diagnoses than traditional clinical testing, including clinical Whole Exome Sequencing (WES) and standard Whole Genom...

Dementia care mapping to support staff in the care of people with intellectual disability and dementia: a feasibility study.

The number of people with intellectual disability and dementia increases; this combination causes behavioural changes. Dementia Care Mapping (DCM) supports staff in dementia care in nursing homes and ...

Intelligence and specific cognitive functions in intellectual disability: implications for assessment and classification.

Current diagnostic criteria for intellectual disability categorize ability as measured by IQ tests. However, this does not suit the new conceptualization of intellectual disability, which refers to a ...

ADHD and Challenging behaviour in People with Intellectual Disability: should we screen for ADHD?

People with Intellectual Disability (ID) have cognitive impairments that affect their level of functioning the causes of which are multiple and often unknown. Behavioural difficulties are common among...

Development of a cognitive behavioural therapy-based guided self-help intervention for adults with intellectual disability.

Despite strong evidence for cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) in treating mental health, its use, thus far, has been limited for people with intellectual disabilities. This study describes a CBT-based...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Subnormal intellectual functioning which originates during the developmental period. This has multiple potential etiologies, including genetic defects and perinatal insults. Intelligence quotient (IQ) scores are commonly used to determine whether an individual has an intellectual disability. IQ scores between 70 and 79 are in the borderline range. Scores below 67 are in the disabled range. (from Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1992, Ch55, p28)

Birth defect that results in a partial or complete absence of the CORPUS CALLOSUM. It may be isolated or a part of a syndrome (e.g., AICARDI'S SYNDROME; ACROCALLOSAL SYNDROME; ANDERMANN SYNDROME; and HOLOPROSENCEPHALY). Clinical manifestations include neuromotor skill impairment and INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY of variable severity.

Techniques of nucleotide sequence analysis that increase the range, complexity, sensitivity, and accuracy of results by greatly increasing the scale of operations and thus the number of nucleotides, and the number of copies of each nucleotide sequenced. The sequencing may be done by analysis of the synthesis or ligation products, hybridization to preexisting sequences, etc.

Determination of the degree of a physical, mental, or emotional handicap. The diagnosis is applied to legal qualification for benefits and income under disability insurance and to eligibility for Social Security and workmen's compensation benefits.

Component of the NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH. It conducts and supports research into the mapping of the human genome and other organism genomes. The National Center for Human Genome Research was established in 1989 and re-named the National Human Genome Research Institute in 1997.
