Mark Dornan is a QUB and Tizard Centre Graduate in Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.
He has compiled an excellent PDF of resources to get you started in learning about disabilities in a meaningful way. Anecdotally, medical students say that this is a part of their course often neglected in favour of 'bigger' topics with higher yield in exams.
Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities are common, and patients who live with them can have complex health and care needs. A well rounded understanding of the conditions and problems contained in this resource sheet is vital to ensure proper and holistic care of these amazing individuals. They are, also, exam topics - and you need to know about them.
