Behaviour intervention.


The major problem with assessing behaviour problems in people with intellectual disability is the distortion in the presentations by this group.

Psychotropic medication should be limited to situations where there is a clear benefit to the patient. Ongoing review and critical assessment of all treatments usually enables one to arrive at the best option for the individual.
