School non-attendance is a major societal problem and a current national and international priority. Children and adolescents with intellectual disability face significant inequalities and challenges, including participation in education. School outcomes are impacted by high rates of school non-attendance. This project therefore aims to address a major gap in knowledge - understanding of types and rates of school non-attendance problems in school students with intellectual disability and the factors that influence non-attendance. Improved understanding of the pathways to non-attendance will facilitate the development of specific interventions to provide much needed improvements in attendance in this disadvantaged group.
