Summary:

These persons are also the most likely to be secluded in large institutions unable to access basic health and educational services and excluded from ordinary social relations.Although it is well known that intellectual disability is a neglected area essential information about the presence or absence of resources and services for this population does not even exist in most of the countries of the world.
