Talking About Dementia With People Who Have An Intellectual and Developmental Disability (IDD)

We often avoid having challenging discussions with people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). However, it is important that an increased health risk or a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRD) be discussed with people with IDD using language and concepts that are understandable and respectful. Clear communication can help, and be a relief, as the person plans for their future and potentially learns to live with ADRD. Lunch is on us! Participate and earn a $25 GrubHub gift card for the first 80 people who complete the pre & post-test. ASL Interpreter will be present.

NTG Releases report on dementia assessment

The National Task Group (NTG) and the Lumind IDSC Foundation have issued a comprehensive report: Examining Adults with Neuroatypical Conditions for Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) /Dementia During Cognitive Impairment Assessments: Report of the Neuroatypical Conditions Expert Consultative Panel.” The report examines the barriers to determining Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) and dementia in adults with neuroatypical conditions, such as acquired brain injury, autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, intellectual disability, serious mental illness, and significant sensory impairments. Developed by an Expert Panel, the report concludes that current federal guidelines for assessing for MCI or dementia do not provide sufficient information to assess such adults and makes recommendations based on their findings.
