Adapting Therapy for Children and Adolescents with Intellectual Disabilities
Nearly half of all children and adolescents with an Intellectual Disability (ID) have co-morbid mental health disorders along with elevated rates of both externalising and internalising problem behaviours compared to their typically developing peers, with anxiety reported as the most prevalent mood disorder in young people with ID.
Despite this, rates of mental illness remain high and access to mental health services is low.
Once mental health problems emerge, young people with ID are likely to suffer from them for a long time and can significantly impact educational, vocational and social opportunities.
