The NIDILRR-funded Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Developmental Disabilities and Health (RRTCDD)  recently published an article, Why do we need national guidelines for adults with intellectual disability (ID) and dementia? in the open access journal Alzheimer’s & Dementia: Diagnosis, Assessment, & Disease Monitoring. The article introduces current research in dementia care practices and highlights the need for special guidelines for individuals with ID, for whom symptoms of dementia may be undiagnosed or misdiagnosed.
