WVC 27 - 1 - 3
§27-1-3. Intellectual disability.
"Intellectual disability" means significantly subaverage
intellectual functioning which manifests itself in a person during
his or her developmental period and which is characterized by his
or her inadequacy in adaptive behavior. Notwithstanding any
provision to the contrary, if any service provision or
reimbursement is affected by the changes in terminology adopted in
the 2010 First Extraordinary Session of the Legislature, the terms
"intellectual disability" or "individuals with an intellectual
disability" shall assume their previous terminology. It is not the
intent of the Legislature to expand the class of individuals
affected by this terminology change.
