Cheetham’s Checklist

This tool was created by Dr. Tom Cheetham, MD, as a brief guide to possible physical health issues that might cause behavioral concerns for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Dr. Cheetham based this list on more than 30 years of experience as a family physician treating individuals with IDD.

For a more in-depth examination of possible causes of mental or behavioral health issues, please see our section on Mental Health.
