dc.description.abstract Early identification of children with cognitive disabilities is crucial for effective intervention. Although international research has identified a number of sociodemographic risk factors that are associated with cognitive disability, there is a lack of South African data that could assist with the development of risk profiles that can help with the early identification of children at risk of having a cognitive disability. The aim of this study was to identify sociodemographic factors associated with a heightened risk of being diagnosed with Mild Mental Retardation (MMR), Borderline Intellectual Functioning (BIF), or a Specific Learning Disorder (SLD), in a clinic sample of South African children en_ZA
