Treatment of Destructive Behavior in Adults with DD/ID: Use of LGA
Severe destructive behavior is at times demonstrated in adults with developmental disabilities. It is important to document the efficacy of interventions/treatments selected to treat that behavior. Not demonstrating efficacy can lead to psychotropic polypharmacy and preventable drug toxicity.
Basic Behavior Evaluation in Adults with Developmental Disabilities

The 7 different categories of Causes of Destructive Behavior are discussed (Environmental, Personality, Medical Illness, Drugs, Psychiatric Disorder, Neurodevelopmental Syndrome, and Specific Brain Abnormality) are discussed. Treatment issues are covered as well.

Our Vision

IFCD develops and promotes collaborative relationships among those involved in the healthcare, education, and research of those health conditions frequently encountered in adults with both childhood-onset and adult-onset chronic health conditions.
