Children and adults with profound intellectual and multiple disabilities (PIMD) are among the most marginalised people in society. They have some of the highest support needs and are most reliant on services. This accessible text presents and promotes current best practice regarding interventions to meet the complex health needs of a person with profound & multiple learning disabilities.

The text presents a range of complex health needs that a practitioner may face, such as communication, nutrition, epilepsy, vision and mobility. Each practice-focused chapter provides clear definitions of the condition, with current evidence-based bestpractice supporting the intervention. Written by a team of professionals who have wide experience and interest in this subject area, this text will be invaluable for all those working with, and caring for those with profound and multiple learning disabilities.
