LEARN ABOUT DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES

Developmental disabilities are a diverse group of severe chronic conditions that are due to mental and/or physical impairments. People with developmental disabilities have problems with major  life activities such as language, mobility, learning, self-help, and independent living. Developmental disabilities begin anytime during development up to 22 years of age and usually lasts throughout a person's lifetime.  more >>
 

 

TIP: UNDERSTANDING A PERSON WITH DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITY

A very typical situation, for example, is that of a middle-aged person with a developmental disability living in dependent relationship with ageing parents. When their first parent dies, they may not be told directly of the death. Nevertheless, they will be aware of their parent's absence, of sadness in the family, and of whispered conversations and concern about themselves.
