|Abstract:||This study describes a book club for college students with intellectual disabilities (ID) at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) and its implications for serving adults with ID. This population is defined as an individual with an IQ of 75 and below who has problems with communication, self-care and socialization. This group is part of a larger category of intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) which include physical problems such as limited physical mobility created due to conditions such as cerebral palsy. Intellectual disabilities are usually diagnosed before the individual reaches the age of 18.|
