Adults with intellectual disability show a larger number of health problems compared to general population. However, disparities in the healthcare access for adults with intellectual disability are reported. Physicians’ attitudes toward and beliefs about adults with intellectual disability are important to promote healthcare access for this population.
The purpose of this study is to explore the perspective of healthcare providers, disability professionals, and family members of children or adults with intellectual disability about the healthcare experience of adults with intellectual disability. Participants will be asked about their impressions about physicians, and about physicians’ beliefs on intellectual disability.

We are looking for adults, 18 years or older, who are disability professionals (e.g., direct support professionals, case managers or other support professionals) or healthcare providers (e.g., physicians, dentists, nurses, psychologists) working in the field of intellectual disability, or family members of children or adults with intellectual disability. Please note that only one person per family can participate in this study.

Participants will be asked to respond to a survey about what they think physicians believe about adults with intellectual disability.
