A study that followed two genetically homogenous cohorts of Finnish children born in 1966 (n=11,965) and 1965-1986 (n=9,432), found there was no change in total incidence of intellectual disability. However, there was a shift from severe and moderate towards mild; whereas profound intellectual disability remained at the same level. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
