Description:
It is estimated that there are almost 60 million people worldwide with an intellectual disability (International Association for the Scientific Study of Intellectual Disabilities, 2002). Intellectual disability is characterised by significant limitations in both intellectual functioning and adaptive behaviour as expressed in practical, social and conceptual skills which originate before the age of 18 years (Schalock et al., 2010). The National Intellectual Disability Database (NIDD) reports that 27,324 people with intellectual disabilities were registered for service provision in Ireland in 2011; 8050 of those registered are women over the age of 20 years (Kelly, 2012).
