According to the CDC “about one in six, or about 15%, of children aged 3 through 17 years have one or more developmental disabilities,” such as ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, cerebral palsy, intellectual disability, and learning disability. Intellectual disorders are characterized by significant limitations in both intellectual functioning and in adaptive behavior, which covers many everyday social and practical skills, impacting learning, reasoning, problem solving, and other cognitive processes. These disabilities originate before the age of 18 and continue across the life span. Developmental disorders are chronic disabilities that can be cognitive or physical or both. The disabilities appear before the age of 22 and are likely to progress across the lifespan. Some developmental disorders are largely physical issues, such as cerebral palsy or epilepsy. Some individuals may have a disorder that includes a physical and intellectual disability; for example, Down syndrome or fetal alcohol syndrome. Intellectual and developmental disorders are significant and growing issues that are studied across a number of disciplines. The SAGE Encyclopedia of Intellectual and Developmental Disorders is aimed at students interested in psychology, counseling, education, social work, psychiatry, health sciences, and more. This encyclopedia will provide an in-depth look at a wide range of disorders, alongside interventions, the latest research translated for an undergraduate audience, historical context, and assessment tools for higher-level students. We will take a truly interdisciplinary approach by also covering sociocultural viewpoints, policy implications, educational applications, ethical issues, and more.

Intellectual Disability (ID) describes a lifelong condition of heterogeneous aetiology, associated with the impairment of intellectual functioning (IQ 70), significant impairment of adaptive skills, and onset before the age of 18 years. People with ID experience significant physical andmental health problems like associated sensory/motor impairments and epilepsy, some of which are contributed to by underlying primary causes. Psychiatric problems are also three times more common in people with ID in comparison to the general population.The psychiatry of ID is a core part of training to be a psychiatrist yet there are limited resources on this topic aimed at both trainees and practising clinicians alike. Oxford Textbook of the Psychiatry of Intellectual Disability bridges this gap by providing up-to-date evidence-based content onthe assessment, diagnosis, and management of psychiatry in people with ID.Featuring 28 chapters written by international experts in the field, the Oxford Textbook of the Psychiatry of Intellectual Disability presents fresh global insight and coverage of the subject. Chapters cover key topics from the developmental aspects of ID, mental disorders in childhood, andbehaviour phenotypes, through to physical health, dementia and other disorders associated with ageing.Each chapter provides trustworthy evidence and a wealth of practical advice for clinical situations, including case studies in community and hospital settings, and multiple choice questions for self-evaluation and consolidation of knowledge.

This book brings together findings from research and clinical practice, with comprehensive coverage of the important aspects of mental health in ageing persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It is crucial for professionals involved in the care of persons with all intellectual and developmental disabilities to have a broad understanding of the essential range of issues, and therefore this book provides a truly multi-disciplinary perspective, complete with many figures and illustrations to underline the key points. Undoubtedly, research and clinical practice is much more advanced in the general ageing population than in persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and so it is important that professionals and academics in the field of intellectual and developmental disabilities are made fully aware of ongoing developments in the general ageing population, which will more likely than not become relevant to the intellectually disabled population. Through experience, this book also acknowledges that the impact on the person themselves and on their carers always needs to be taken into account, with treatment programs established with a multi-faceted team approach in mind. Avoiding the jargon of many titles in this area while maintaining the hands-on approach of clinical practice, this book meshes the practical and scientific worlds, with all chapters written by leading experts in the field. Further this book will have an international aspect with a view to the IASSIDD promoting the book to all its members in the USA.
