This fully revised and expanded second edition brings together findings from research and clinical practice, with comprehensive coverage of the important aspects of physical health in persons with intellectual disability. Professionals involved in the medical and social care and support of persons with intellectual disability should have a broad understanding of the essential range of issues, and therefore this book provides a truly multi-disciplinary perspective, complete with many tables, figures, and illustrations to underline the key points. The reader is updated on ongoing developments in the general population, which will become increasingly more relevant to adults with intellectual disability. This book also acknowledges that the impact on the person and on their carers always needs to be taken into account, with treatment programs established with a multi-faceted team approach in mind. This book is aimed at an international audience of physicians and other allied health personnel concerned about the health and welfare of adults with intellectual disability. It should also be of interest to researchers, administrators, and senior program personnel engaged in this field
