C205 - Neurologic Complications in Adults with Down Syndrome

Event Time: Thursday April 27, 2017 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): Aging, Dementia, Cognitive, and Behavioral Neurology, Child Neurology and Developmental Neurology
Director(s): Seth Keller MD
Description: Neurologic complications in adults with Down syndrome (DS) are very common. Years ago individuals with Down syndrome often did not survive into adulthood, but with advances in health care and disability rights, many are now becoming seniors. Advancing age brings the expected age-related decline in function as well as disease. Neurologic complications including gait dysfunction, tremors, seizures, and dementia all become significant health complications which often have a tremendous impact on quality of life, activities of daily living, as well as their effects on families and support organizations that care for these individuals. This program will bring together experts in the field who will be able to educate and train the health care provider in being able to reduce the burden of disease, improve satisfaction of care, and provide a model to others.
Completion Message: Participants should be familiar with the demographics of aging over time in those with DS; discuss the issues involved with aging parents and community supports; describe how seizures manifest in those aging with DS; explain how gait dysfunction develops in those aging with DS; and recognize how early onset Alzheimer's disease occurs in those with DS.
