What is Intellectual Disability?
Intellectual Disability is characterized by:

  • Below average intellectual functioning
  • Significant deficit in adaptive behavioral skills in the areas of communication, self-care, home living, self-direction, social skills, use of community resources, functional academic skills, work, leisure and health
  • Onset prior to 18 years of age

Who is eligible to receive Intellectual Disability services? 
StarCare provides services for people with a diagnosis of Intellectual Disability based on the following three criteria:

  • The person must have an IQ level of 69 or below or a related condition, and
  • The person's Adaptive Behavior Level (ABL) must be significantly below the norm, and
  • The onset of the condition must have occurred between birth and 18 years

There are some individuals who may meet only two out of three of the above mentioned criteria.  Those persons would not have a diagnosis of Intellectual Disability, but may be eligible for other services through StarCare Specialty Health System. 

In what ways can StarCare Specialty Health System help?
StarCare Specialty Health System manages a network of residential and support services for people with Intellectual Disability.  All individuals found eligible for services will be given a choice of providers, and be assisted by a service coordinator to develop a plan for services.
