Brief Summary

The purpose of this study is to examine the feasibility and initial efficacy of a healthy lifestyles intervention for the prevention of weight gain and the promotion of basic life skills related to improving health in transition age young adults with intellectual disabilities.

Detailed Description

This is a single arm, longitudinal trial. 30 young adults with intellectual disabilities will be recruited to participate in a 12-week, healthy lifestyles intervention, delivered in person to a group of individuals with ID at the Center for Children's Healthy Lifestyles and Nutrition. Participants will be asked to attend one 2 hr group session each week (~5-6 participants per group). All sessions will have an education component, a hands-on nutrition/cooking lesson, and a group exercise session. Additionally, participants will be asked to attend a 20-minute monthly individual goal setting session conducted remotely over Zoom video conferencing. All sessions will be conducted by a trained health educator experienced in working with individuals with intellectual disabilities. Tablet computers and Fitbit wireless activity monitors will be provided to all participants, with study issued HIPPA compliant Zoom and Fitbit accounts. Outcome assessments will be collected at baseline and after the 12-week intervention.
