Translations of the Criteria for Intellectual Disability



In 2019, the members of the AAIDD International Interest Network initiated a project to translate the three-pronged definitional/diagnostic criteria for intellectual disability into languages other than English.

AAIDD thanks those who performed the translations and those who reviewed the translations for fidelity.
