Mental Retardation

Of the problems that can occur with autism, mental retardation is the most widespread. 75 to 80 percent of people with autism are mentally retarded to some extent. 15 to 20 percent are considered severely retarded, with IQs below 35. (A score of 100 represents average intelligence) But autism does not necessarily correspond with mental impairment. More than 10 percent of people with autism have an average or above average IQ. A few show exceptional intelligence.
