Whitaker, Simon (2015) Guidance on the Assessment and Diagnosis of Intellectual Disabilities in Adulthood: Getting there but still some way to go. The Bulletin of the Faculty for People with Intellectual Disabilities, 13 (3). pp. 16-21. ISSN 2056-3094
Abstract

The new BPS Guidance on the Assessment and Diagnosis of Intellectual Disabilities in Adulthood are reviewed. It is argued that the continuation of IQ cutoff points and the introduction of adaptive behaviour cut off points are not justified if current research on our ability to measure these two variables is properly considered. The greater emphasis on clinical judgment is welcomed.
