Intellectual Disability and Health Information

This web-based learning resource is for medical and health care students and practitioners. Launched at the Houses of Parliament in February 2002, the site's main aim is to provide up-to-date information about the health needs of people with intellectual disabilities. The site covers a broad focus, and articles include subjects such as prevention and diagnosis, but also social care issues, family issues and perspectives and the perspectives of people with intellectual disabilities themselves. The website is used worldwide,which is why we use 'intellectual' disability or disabilities, terms which are increasingly recognised universally. In the UK the terms most commonly used are learning disability or learning difficulty. The site is run jointly by St George's, University of London and the Down's Syndrome Association.
