Abstract

In this chapter, we provide a brief overview of what is known about disparities in the health of people with intellectual disabilities when compared to those in their non-intellectual disabled peers and current approaches to conceptualizing the causes of these differences. We then provide an overview of the six chapters that form the core of this edited volume on the health disparities (and inequities) experienced by people with intellectual disabilities.
