The Developmental Neuropsychiatry of Intellectual Developmental Disability: Advances in Classification, Diagnosis, and Treatment

This Institute details the new DSM-5 definition of Intellectual Disability/Intellectual Developmental Disorder (ID/IDD), emphasizing the importance of psychiatry in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of children and adolescents with ID/IDD who have co-occurring psychiatric disorders, and discussing recent advances in treatment targeted to neurobiological mechanisms, behavioral therapies (including severe behaviors), family-focused therapies to alleviate distress, and psychopharmacological interventions. Attendees gain understanding of the essential role played by child and adolescent psychiatrists in light of the DSM-5 now identifying gullibility and lack of risk awareness as characteristic features in determining the severity of ID/IDD and requiring a face-to-face clinical psychiatric assessment. Legal, forensic, and ethical issues are also part of the discussion. Child and adolescent psychiatrists receive limited training in this area and benefit from the knowledge of experts in the field.
