Health disparities and health promotion needs of college students with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities: A systematic literature review

Health disparities and health promotion needs of college students with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities: A systematic literature review

A new population of college students is emerging on campuses across the United States: students with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (IDD). With this new and growing population of college students, an important question persists: are their health and wellness needs being identified and met? The authors concluded that research on this unique population should continue, and the etiology of health and wellness issues of college students with IDD should be established to develop and implement evidence-based programing.
