Series: Journal of Intellectual Disability Research 59 (3) 2015: 284-292. 2015Subject(s): INTERACTION | PROFOUND INTELLECTUAL AND MULTIPLE DISABILITIES | SUPPORT STAFF | ACTIVITIESSummary: When providing activities to individuals with profound intellectual and multiple disabilities (PIMD), direct support persons (DSPs) often face questions that are, among other things, related to the alertness of the person with PIMD. While previous studies have revealed that stimulation might have a greater impact on levels of alertness than the internal conditions of the individual, they have also emphasized the importance of interaction in order to influence the level of alertness. Because the initiation of this interaction has been described as one of its core components, the present study has focused on the relationship between the stimuli presented, the initiation of the activity (by the person with PIMD or the DSP), and the level of alertness of the person with PIMD. Discusses the findings and their implications for individuals with PIMD.
