Data on self- and parent/carer-reported behavioural and emotional problems were also collected. Methods and proced...

Difficulty responding to sensory information (noise, touch, movement, taste, sight) is common, and might include feeling overwhelmed or distressed by loud or constant low-level noise (e.g. in the classroom). Affected children may also show little or no response to these sensory cues. These ‘sensory processing difficulties’ are a...

Background: The study examined developmental trajectories of prosocial behaviours, internalising and externalising behaviour problems in children with intellectual disabilities (ID) between pre-school and middle childhood. Method: Growth models examined the best-fitting trajectories for internalising and externalising behaviour problems, as well as prosocial behaviours, in 555 children with ID between the ages of three and 11 years from the UK Millennium Cohort Study. Models were also fitted to ...
We describe a naturally occurring, real-world comparison of outcomes following 6 months in standalone DBT skills training group for adults with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) without recent suicidal or severe self-harming behaviours and standard (i.e. all modes) DBT for BPD including patients with recent high-risk behaviours. 34 patients chose standalone skills over waiting for standard DBT and 54 were offered standard DBT. Dropout was higher for standalone skills than standard DBT (38.2%...
Background Globally, people with intellectual disabilities, autism, or both, experience health inequalities. Death occurs at a younger age and the prevalence of long-term morbidities is higher than in the general population. Despite this, their primary healthcare access rates are lower, their health needs are often unmet, and their views and experiences are frequently overlooked in research, policy and practice. Aim To investigate the barriers and facilitators reported by individuals with intell...
