Supports for people with multiple needs

People with intellectual disability can have multiple needs. Multiple needs are also sometimes known as complex needs. Complex needs means that there are different things happening in the person’s life such as disability and many health problems.

For more information see the section for People with multiple needs.

Services and supports for people with multiple needs include the following:

  • Specialist Intellectual Disability Health Teams know how to work with people with intellectual disability. They can work with your doctor or health workers to help support you. Visit the Services page for more information.
  • The Council for Intellectual Disability has a My Health Matters folder. It can help you communicate with your health workers.
