Presentations of physical illness in people with developmental disability: the example of gastro‐oesophageal reflux Academic Article uri icon


  • People with developmental disabilities are becoming an important part of the general practice population.

We use gastro-oesophageal reflux to illustrate how developmental disability may affect the presentation, assessment and management of a common condition.
