The Diagnostic Manual - Intellectual Disability (DM-ID): A Textbook of Diagnosis of Mental Disorders in Persons with Intellectual Disability, developed by the National Association for the Dually Diagnosed (NADD) in association with the American Psychiatric Association (APA), is a diagnostic manual designed to facilitate an accurate DSM-IV-TR diagnosis in persons who have intellectual disabilities and to provide a thorough discussion of the issues involved in reaching an accurate diagnosis. The DM-ID provides state-of-the-art information concerning mental disorders in persons with intellectual disabilities. Grounded in evidence-based methods and supported by the expert-consensus model, the DM-ID offers a broad examination of the issues involved in applying diagnostic criteria for psychiatric disorders to persons with intellectual disabilities. The DM-ID includes a description of each psychiatric disorder, a summary of the DSM-IV-TR diagnostic criteria, a review of the research and an evaluation of the strength of evidence supporting the literature conclusions, a discussion of the etiology and pathogenesis of the disorder, and adaptations of the diagnostic criteria, where applicable, for persons with intellectual disabilities.
