Dual diagnosis training will be defined as those individuals with mental illness combined with a developmental and/ or intellectual disability. We will discuss barriers to treatment, the impact of medications, the difference between the symptoms of the psychiatric illness and their developmental / intellectual disability, the dichotomy of behavior versus disability versus psychiatric illness and the difficulty of access to higher levels of care.
