This workshop will explore the phenomenon of functional change within the population of adults who are aging with intellectual disability. Observation of early indicators of change can result in individuals receiving clinical assessment, supports and interventions earlier in the process of decline. The facilitator will highlight reasons for decline, specify strategies that family and professional caregivers can use to identify and document significant change and link these to actionable steps.
