Abstract

Purpose of review: This review examines papers published in the last 12 months in the area of mental health problems in children and adolescents with intellectual disability. The research is organized into the following sections: mental health investigations, specific syndromes, family/carer-related papers, treatment findings and theoretical papers. Recent findings: Significant findings are presented on the nature and prevalence of psychopathology in young people with intellectual disability and some specific syndrome groups. Summary: Whilst much progress has been made recently in defining the nature of mental health problems in children and adolescents with intellectual disability, further information is needed on the development of psychopathology in this population. It is now essential that more research be undertaken in developing efficacious treatments for these children and their families.
