Comorbid Conditions in Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities

Abstract

The promotion of quality of life (QOL) and participation in the community for people with cerebral palsy (CP) is important to their overall well-being. This chapter will discuss the interaction between the individual and the environment, the importance of assessment of QOL interventions for the personal outcomes of individuals with CP, and support service strategies promoting the participation and QOL.
