Actions Speak Louder Than Words:
Behavioral Manifestations of Common Medical Conditions in People with IDD

Presented by:

Karen Green McGowan, RN, CDDN
Craig Escudé, MD, FAAFP

Many people with IDD communicate pain and other ailments through their behavior. To the unaware provider, this may result in treatment of a perceived behavioral issue rather than the underlying medical issue that may be the cause of the behavior. This presentation will provide participants with common behaviors that should prompt a medical evaluation. Specific behaviors and common medical conditions that they may indicate will be discussed in a case study format.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify common behaviors that may indicate medical causes in people with IDD.
  2. Correlate behaviors with potential medical causes.
  3. Understand specific medical work-ups that should be considered when certain behaviors present.
