Mixed terminology: A specific learning disorder occurs in a child IQ & adaptive skills are average to above average. Intellectual Disability (ID) is the diagnosis if her measured cognitive & adaptive skills are < 70. Educational supports differ for each. Developmental/Behavioral Pediatricians & child neurologists perform physical, neurological & genetic evaluations for the cause of ID & associated impairments.
