AAIDD is pleased to make available translations of the three-pronged definitional/diagnostic criteria for intellectual disability on its website.

The members of the AAIDD International Interest Network initiated a project to translate the criteria into languages other than English, and those translations are now available. AAIDD thanks those who performed the translations and those who reviewed the translations for fidelity.
