Adult Protective Services
Located within the Division of Aging, Adult and Behavior Health Services, they investigate reports of abuse, neglect, or exploitation of people age 18 and older residing in the community who have a mental or physical impairment, who may not understand the danger of remaining in the situation, and are unable to protect themselves e.g. (in home protective services)

Orthopedic impairment includes impairments caused by congenital anomaly (e.g., clubfoot, absence of an arm/leg, etc.), impairments caused by disease (e.g., poliomyelitis, bone tuberculosis, etc.), and impairments from other causes (e.g., cerebral palsy, amputations, and fractures or burns which cause contractures).

In United States' law, a misdemeanor is a crime less serious than a felony. If a person is convicted of a misdemeanor, they may have to pay criminal fines and could receive a jail sentence of up to one year. If a person is convicted of a felony, however, it can result in a prison sentence for at least one year or longer, the fines will be greater, and depending on the crime, the maximum penalty could be a death sentence.

Intellectual disability is a term used when there are limits to a person’s ability to learn at an expected level and function in daily life. Children with intellectual disability might have a hard time letting others know their wants and needs, and taking care of themselves. Intellectual disability could cause a child to learn and develop more slowly than other children of the same age. It could take longer for a child with intellectual disability to learn to speak, walk, dress, or eat without help, and they could have trouble learning in school.
Some of the most commonly known causes of intellectual disability – like Down syndrome, fetal alcohol syndrome, fragile X syndrome, genetic conditions, birth defects, and infections – happen before birth. Others happen while a baby is being born or soon after birth. Still other causes of intellectual disability do not occur until a child is older; these might include serious head injury, stroke, or certain infections.
