Health position statement 2019


Our position statement on health

January 2019

People with intellectual disability are not treated the same when it comes to health.

We want all health services to know how to work with people with intellectual disability.

In our position statement on health, we identify how health services can be improved for people intellectual disability.

Three important improvements we identify are:

  1. All health professionals should be trained in intellectual disability.
  2. Health information should be in Easy Read.
  3. Health professionals should take more time with people with intellectual disability.
