In addition to abuse from people in positions of power, peer abuse is recognized as a significant, if misunderstood, problem. Caregivers provide a good source of personal and practical information, and community support agencies such as the Developmental Disabilities Services and the Administration on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities at the federal level that connect patients with community resources and funding are an instrumental part of the care continuum. The degree of disability can be quantified by assigning a developmental age to a person, which is age of the group into which test scores place the person.
