65-6234. Term of intellectual disability; state official policy. It is hereby declared to be the official policy of the state of Kansas that the term "intellectual disability" be used in place of the term "mental retardation" and the term "person or people with intellectual disability" be used in place of the term "mentally retarded." Whenever the term "mental retardation" or "retardation" appears in the Kansas administrative regulations, state agencies are hereby directed to read and use the term "intellectual disability." State agencies are further directed that, in the normal course of conducting their planned updates or changes to language in rules and regulations, agencies update the terminology of their rules and regulations to be consistent with this policy. The changes to the new policy and new terminology can take place as rules and regulations are naturally updated.
