Abstract:
People with intellectual disabilities (ID), and in particular adolescents, are at increased risk of suffering from poorer health than people without ID. This vulnerable group are at particular risk of becoming obese and developing type 2 diabetes which can lead to cardiovascular disease, stroke and death. An established mediating factor to lessen the likelihood of becoming obese and its associated risks is through participating in regular physical activity.
