The Baily Thomas Charitable Fund provides grants for general and research work with people with learning disabilities.
“Learning disabilities” is the same as “intellectual disabilities”; these terms are inter-changeable.
People with learning disabilities have these three things:
global intellectual impairment (intelligence quotient less than 70), and
need for support/help to fulfil ordinary daily activities, and
onset before the age of 18 years.
Learning disabilities may have a recognised cause, e.g. Down syndrome, Williams syndrome, but often the cause is not known.
Children, young people, and adults with learning disabilities often also have other physical and mental health conditions, disabilities, and/or impairments as well as having learning disabilities.
