Sleep disorders in intellectual disability
February 7 @ 12:45 am - 8:55 am
07 February 2023 | London, UK
Sleep disorders are common in people with intellectual disabilities but are often overlooked. When untreated, these disorders can have adverse physical and mental health consequences and may also contribute to challenging behaviors, leading to higher social and healthcare utilization.
This meeting will help you identify and treat common primary sleep disorders in individuals with intellectual disabilities and associated neurodevelopmental disorders.
We will also hear from cares, who will provide a nuanced first-hand account of the impact of sleep disorders; and consider what we can do as services to improve co-working between sleep medicine and intellectual disability specialists.
