Rosa’s Law (Pub.L. 111-256) is a United States law which replaces several instances of “mental retardation” in law with “intellectual disability”.  The bill was signed into law by President Barack Obama on October 5, 2010.  The law is named for Rosa Marcellino, a girl with Down Syndrome who was nine years old when it became law, and who, according to President Barack Obama, “worked with her parents and her siblings to have the words “mentally retarded” officially removed from the health and education code in her home state of Maryland”.
