The aim of the webinar is to understand the difficulties in the assessment of people with intellectual disability and to think about how these can be addressed. Participants will review definitions of intellectual disability and consider the prevalence of mental disorders in this group. They will also learn how mental illness can present in this population and consider what adjustments in practice may need to be made.
