Success in orthodontic treatment for a child with an intellectual disability is the extent to which the treatment rendered fulfills the parent’s expectation. How close you come to delivering the experience and treatment outcome that the parent was promised the day of the initial examination will determine orthodontic success. The concept of under-promise and overdeliver is usually a good policy. Mindset is more important than technical ability.
- Understand the nature of the child with intellectual disabilities
- Appreciate the parental perspective on their child with intellectual disabilities
