According to the American Association on Mental Retardation, there are over 375 different causes of mental retardation.
Mental retardation, the main characteristic of the various developmental disabilities, is a significant lifelong disability that exists in all communities everywhere in the world.
The ARC Imperial Valley, an affiliate of both ARC California and the ARC of the United States, during Mental Retardation Awareness Month would like to share its message of inclusion for people with mental retardation. Please contact the ARC Imperial Valley or visit www.thearc.org to learn more about the issues affecting people with mental retardation and their families.
