        He developed a test to measure the 'mental age' (MA) of children entering school. Mental age refers to the child's current ability compared to other children of different ages. In other words, if a child responded to questions at about the same correctness as an eight year old, the child would be said to have a mental age of eight. Specifically, the committee has been asked to (a) examine the adequacy of the SSA definition of mental retardation, (b) comment on the current procedures for assessing intellectual capabilities and indicate how best to make that assessment consistent with current science and professional practice, (c) discuss the issue of adaptive behavior and its assessment consistent with current science and.   Mental retardation or mental disability, is a generalized disorder characterized by impaired cognitive functioning. The affected individuals with mental retardation have an IQ below 70 (between 50 and 70 = mild mental retardation; Below 50 = moderate mental retardation). The races differ in IQ (70 to Sub-Saharan Africans, 85 African Americans, whites) but also.
