Individuals with intellectual disabilities have a high risk of obesity. The effectiveness of community-based interventions at improving obesity-related outcomes was assessed. Results showed low to moderate evidence for nutritional, physical activity, and health knowledge and self-efficacy outcomes and low evidence for physical fitness. OTs are well-suited to align community-based interventions with meaningful outcomes to improve the health and well-being of people with intellectual disabilities.
