Intellectual disability affects 1 in 100 people in Catalonia. A major challenge in the field of disability is for people to be able to control their lives autonomously and independently. To achieve this, the health and quality of life of the person is essential. Healthy living habits are behaviors that have a positive impact on physical, mental and social well-being, so it is necessary to incorporate these behaviors from childhood and adapt them to the needs of each child. Objectives: The main objective of the project is to know the healthy lifestyle habits of children with mild and moderate intellectual disabilities between 6 and 11 years of three special schools in the region of Gironès. In addition, to know the perception of parents and how they cope with the disability of children to establish good habits and analyze the promotion that makes nursing of these healthy habits to children with intellectual disabilities and their families. Methodology: This is an observational, descriptive and cross-sectional study that will be carried out in three special schools in the Gironès region, the Font de l'Abella Education Center, the Joan Riu Education School and the Madre de Dios del Carmen Education Center.
