dc.descriptionMental Handicap is a condition characterj~ed by various degrees of impainnent in maturation, learning and social adjustment, which may limit the potential of the individual. It is very often combined with a physical handicap or with emotional disturbances. Mental Handicap is not an "illness" or a specific disease entity. The tenn covers a very wide range of conditions. At one end there are people who are so sever~ly impaired that they will require continuous care and supervision tp...foughout their lives. At the other end there are people who need no more than special education during their school going years and who would be almost indistinguishable from the general population. There continues to be differences of opinion and of practice as to where the line should be drawn between those who are regarded as mentally handicapped and those who are not. Intelligence and social competence are the main criteria on which mental handicap is evaluated. These proceed on a continuum from lowest to the highest.en_GB
