Pawlyn, Jillian In: Barksby, J. and Charnock, C. eds. Learning Disability Case Studies. McGraw-Hill, (in press).


People with Profound Intellectual and Multiple Disabilities (PIMD) are, like everyone else, unique individuals, but sometimes it is helpful to talk about groups of people who have common concerns. People with profound intellectual and multiple disabilities have more than one disability, the most significant of which is a profound level of intellectual disability.
In this chapter a case study is presented which focuses on Peter (pseudonym), he has profound level of intellectual disability and multiple physical disabilities and lives in a bungalow shared with three other young adults who also have profound intellectual and multiple disabilities.
