Borderline intellectual functioning

Borderline intellectual functioning, also called borderline mental disability, is a categorization of intelligence wherein a person has below average cognitive ability (generally an IQ of 70–85),[1] but the deficit is not as severe as intellectual disability (below 70). It is sometimes called below average IQ (BAIQ). This is technically a cognitive impairment; however, this group may not be sufficiently mentally disabled to be eligible for specialized services.[2] Additionally, the DSM-IV-TR codes borderline intellectual functioning as V62.89,[3] which is generally[citation needed] not a billable code[clarification needed][citation needed], unlike the codes for mental disabilities.

During school years, individuals with borderline intellectual functioning are often “slow learners.”[2] Although a large percentage of this group fails to complete high school and can often achieve only a low socioeconomic status, most adults in this group blend in with the rest of the population.[2]
