Health Check

A Comprehensive Health Assessment of Adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

The Health Check is a tool to organize a comprehensive health assessment, including physical exam, for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The tool identifies health problems common in adults with IDD that are different from the general population, and it provides tips and resources to facilitate diagnosis and management. The Health Check provides an IDD perspective on a task that is familiar to primary care clinicians. The Expanded Explanations offer additional guidance on specific questions to ask and particular issues more prevalent in this population.
