People with an Intellectual Disability (ID) are around 4 times more likely to suffer with a mental health disorder than IQ-typical people, however previous studies have shown they may be less likely to be diagnosed. One suggested cause of this is the diagnostic overshadowing bias: the tendency for practitioners to attribute unusual behaviour,…
