Intellectual And Developmental Disabilities And How To Differentiate These From Mental Illness

Intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDDs) refer to disorders that typically manifest from birth and have a detrimental impact on an individual’s physical, intellectual, and emotional development.

It’s not uncommon for an individual to be misdiagnosed with a mental illness before receiving a diagnosis for a developmental disorder.  This course will explore the various types of developmental disabilities and how to differentiate these from mental illnesses.

This course will award 1 continuing education hour.  Please see the board approval box for course approval information.
