Maladaptive behaviors and psychiatric disorders are common in individuals with intellectual disabilities. In clinical practice as well as in scientific literature much attention is given to the diagnosis, analysis and treatment of such disorders. Evidence-based practice (EBP) has become an important international movement in psychotherapy, and recent years have shown an increased focus on - and need for - the use of EBP in treatment in the field of intellectual disabilities.
