The Intellectual Disabilities and Dementia website was developed under a grant from the New York State Developmental Disabilities Planning Council. It is intended to be a resource for staff caring for individuals with intellectual and other developmental disabilities who are showing signs of dementia. Administrators and researchers will also find some of the links helpful.
Sites specific to developmental disabilities and to aging and dementia are included. Users are encouraged to cross between the two service systems and research literatures to facilitate the development and delivery of the most comprehensive and effective services.
The listing of sites is not intended to be exhaustive. Instead, the majority of links are to web portals, i.e., to sites designed to lead users to a variety of related sites. Some of the sites are New York specific; many others are U.S. based. However, a number of international sites are also included.
