Dementia and Developmental Disabilities: What’s Happening (Recorded Webinar)
This is the ninth of twelve recorded webinars in the Getting Connected: Understanding Different Dementias webinar series with Teepa Snow. For the first time in history, people living with developmental disabilities and intellectual disabilities since childhood are experiencing full life spans. As this happens, we are recognizing a growing and special population of people who are living with dementia. In this webinar, explore awareness of early symptoms of dementia in this population, learn about supports and options that will be helpful, and gain knowledge of approaches that make a difference.
By the end of this webinar, you will be able to:
- Understand situations and challenges specific to people with developmental and intellectual disabilities who may be living with dementia
- Describe examples of early dementia symptoms in this population
- Discuss several supports and approaches that may be used to help those living with dementia and other disabilities
