What are the 4 different levels of mental retardation?
How is the level of retardation of individuals determined?
by standardized intelligence tests

- in special classes for the educable, child advances to a level of 3rd-6th grade
- practical skills can be learned
Describe the adaptive behavior of adults with mild retardation. (4)
