What does it mean when I hear that Costello syndrome children have ?developmental delay??

In the US school setting, intellectual disabilities are still referred to as mental retardation, though the federal government is working to change that with a law. It is one of 13 categories of disability under which children may be identified for special education services under IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act).

In the UK, the NHS designation is  learning disability, which means something quite different in the US., or special educational needs.
