dc.description.abstractFull inclusion and participation of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in daily life in their own communities, is now recognized as their human right and is a stated goal in many countries. When people with intellectual and developmental disabilities experience mental distress, or their behaviors appear unusual, attending carefully to their communication in whatever way this occurs is crucial, as their perspectives on what may be causing this distress (or unusual behaviors), may be different from what might be concluded based on traditional psychiatric diagnostic frameworks, e.g., Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) and The International Classification of Mental and Behavioral Disorders (ICD). Learning the emotional and behavioral language of those who do not communicate in typical ways will ensure that all with intellectual and developmental disabilities contribute their voices to a better understanding of the mental distress they experience and should result in more effective interventions and optimal mental health and well-being.en_US
