Part of the Autism and Child Psychopathology Series book series (ACPS)

Abstract

There is a growing recognition over the last 25 years that adults with intellectual disability (ID) are vulnerable to mental health problems due to particular biological, psychological and social factors. In this handbook we aimed to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of research and critically evaluate the complexities in both aetiology and manifestation of psychopathology in those with ID. We also review assessment, interventions and service issues with an emphasis on translating research evidence into clinical practice and policy. The aim was to provide a reflection of current practice and research as well as implications for future clinical practice and service delivery. The handbook is written primarily for doctoral level professionals and doctoral level students in training across a range of disciplines such as psychology, psychiatry, special education, communication disorders, child development and social work.
