    Abstract

    Communication within clinical settings is crucial for successful
    clinical practice. However, this is challenging when the clinician
    interacts with patients with Intellectual Disabilities (ID) who may have
    communication difficulties or find it difficult to understand the treatment process. The “Stories at the Dentist” project aims to develop a support tool to improve clinical communication between clinicians and patients with ID. This
    paper outlines a design workshop undertaken as part of a user
    centered design process.
