Example text

It is likely that Nicolette is experiencing signs and symptoms of the menopause, and due to her level of intellectual impairment she may not be aware of what the menopause is or what it entails. The symptoms alone may lead her to believe that she is ill with a serious disease which could compound her anxiety and add to her already emotional and depressed state. Many women suffer from some sort of mental health crisis during the stages of the menopause. The breakdown in her relationship with Charlie, coupled with his abuse of substances and unstable mental health status, will only compound the situation.

Fear, anxiety and stress may exacerbate communication difficulties and result in acquiescent and suggestible behaviour. Mencap (2004) recommends extended and more flexible appointment arrangement times for people with learning disabilities because of the difficulties they can experience – this should also include any individual who has an intellectual impairment for whatever reason. A final area of concern regarding organizational barriers is the very idea of intellectual impairment itself. The present tripartite definition of learning disability being an Intelligence Quotient (IQ) below 70, onset under age 18 years, and presence of significant impairment of adaptive functioning is not an inclusive enough definition.

Access to health screening and health checks is routinely recommended for certain people in the community such as breast and cervical screening for women. Despite this, women with intellectual disabilities are less likely than the general population to receive cervical screening and similarly they are less likely to be offered breast examination or mammography appointments. Similarly, as this group have complex health needs, annual health checks should be offered routinely to identify unrecognized health problems so the burden of identification is not solely on carers who may have little healthcare knowledge.
