Presented by Philip May MD and Seth Keller MD To download related learning materials,go to IFCD website at http://www.chronicdisabilities.org and click on “IFCD BlogTalkRadio University Series on Disabilities Medicine” and download document entitled “ The 5 Essential Concepts of Developmental Medicine: A New Medical Paradigm for Persons with Developmental Disabilities”. Of the 3 categories of Chronic Brain Disorder(CBD), namely, 1)Childhood Onset, 2) Young Adult Onset, and 3)Aging Related Onset, the Childood Onset type of CBD is perhaps the most complex, devastating, and costly, both monetarily as well as in terms of overall human suffering. Yet it is precisely the Childhood Onset type of CBD that is least understood by healthcare professionals such as physicians, dentists, and nurses. Thus the IFCD Educational Committee felt that our "IFCD BlogTalkRadio University Series on Disabilities Medicine" should begin with an overview of "Developmental Disabilities Medicine", which is defined as "The Evaluation and Management of those Health Conditions that are Frequently Encountered in Adults with Childhood Onset CBD". The centerpiece of this discussion will be on what is known as the "5 Essential Concepts of Developmental Medicine".
