2:00pm EDT - 3:00 EDT
Individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD) are more likely to have health related problems and also likely to challenges in accessing appropriate health care. These realities are complicated by limitations in communication and by some behavioral expressions of distress. This presentation will review some of the health related considerations and the importance of understanding health promotion in preventing unnecessary medical and behavioral complications for people with IDD.
