This class focuses on how to recognize the signs and symptoms of illness in a person with developmental disabilities, including those who are nonverbal or whose verbal communication is unusual. We will discuss vital signs and how to interpret them, although we will not learn how to actually measure vital signs in this particular class. Specific body systems and their malfunction will also be discussed during the session. We cover some of the more common problems associated with developmental disabilities such as seizures in the neurological systems, swallowing disorders, and problems with bowel functioning. This class also incorporates education regarding practices of infection control including: Standard Precautions, handwashing techniques, safe food handling practices and laundry techniques.
