People with intellectual or developmental disabilities are great people. Unfortunately, their disabilities can irritate and make them difficult people. And our reaction toward them is an important factor in how they behave and act. In fact, many experts in intellectual disabilities in Ohio recommend we show and react to their positive attitudes. Positive attitudes such as:
- Respecting them
They aren’t lesser than us just because of their disabilities. Thus, we must give them, and they must receive the same amount of respect as others do.
- Encouraging and promoting health, disease, injuries, and accident prevention
We can do this by providing them with services like physical check-ups and non-medical transportation.
- Understand their communication in both receptive and expressive ways.
If we have communication problems, their disability makes it worse. So, we must know how to deliver our message so they’ll understand (receptive) and how to receive the message so we’ll understand (expressive).
