The term PIMD is used to refer to people with a severe or profound intellectual disability. Their intellectual disability is so profound that we have no means of ascertaining their IQ or their developmental age. These people have several types of disabilities that significantly impact each other, including severe or profound motor disabilities. People with PIMD usually have limited arm and hand function and depend on mobility aids to get around. The majority of them also have sensory disabilities and multiple health issues. The term is usually applied to people who became disabled before the age of eighteen.
