Abstract

In light of current worldwide developments, the conference theme “Value Diversity” explicitly refers to the changes we need to see.
This contribution is about Life expectancy of people with a severe or profound intellectual disability. Their life expectancy increases, which contributes to the risk of developing dementia. However, early detection and diagnosing dementia is complex, because of their low-level baseline functioning. Therefore, the aim is to identify observable dementia symptoms in adults with severe or profound intellectual disability in available literature.
