Although there is no specific medication for intellectual disability, many people with developmental disabilities have further medical complications and may be prescribed several medications. Some children, particularly those with emotional problems, strain regular classrooms; others may need the smaller, quieter and more individual settings of special education.

And I also agree with him that in determining societal differences we have been too concerned with environmental factors and the degree of technological achievement and, due to this preoccupation, have paid insufficient attention to more subtle qualities in the life of a nation or a tribe which would help us to understand why the citizens on developing Truk Islands and those in highly developed Denmark both have a far more positive and generous attitude toward the mentally retarded than countries in a similar developmental stage.

A thoughtless society erected buildings, built sidewalks, busses and other conveyances, which quite unnecessarily complicated movement and, indeed, made some of these facilities inaccessible.
