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.
