English term or phrase: developmentally disabled
I need a "politically correct" term in Spanish to identify developmentally disabled, i.e., mentally handicapped, adults
D. Nolan
Discapacitados mentales
Explanation:
Si haces una búsqueda en la Web, vas a ver muchos sitios oficiales de gobiernos y de prensa en qeu se ocupa esta expresión, lo que te garantiza que es "políticamente correcto". Acá va una muestra:

"El Defensor del Pueblo Andaluz entrega un nuevo Informe Especial sobre la presencia de discapacitados mentales en prisión"
(http://www.defensor-and.es/i-menprp.htm)

Suerte!

Discapacidad intelectual o cognitiva


Explanation:
El término políticamente correcto actual es "discapacidad intelectual o cognitiva", lo que implica una limitación substancial en el desarrollo de la persona. Ejemplos: Síndrome de Down, autismo, síndrome X frágil, etc.
La definición según thefreedictionary: A cognitive, emotional, or physical impairment, especially one related to abnormal sensory or motor development, that appears in infancy or childhood and involves a failure or delay in progressing through the normal developmental stages of childhood.
