Special Interest Group in Intellectual Disabilities

Membership is open to any PSI member, and there is no membership fee. Log into your PSI dashboard, then find us under ‘Groups’ and use the link at the bottom of the page.

The ID SIG (formerly called the Special Interest Group in Learning Disabilities) was the first special interest group to be formed within the PSI. We were founded in 1974 following discussion at the PSI annual conference in Limerick in 1973. The group is comprised of psychologists who are working, researching, or have an interest, in the field of intellectual and developmental disabilities, and who are members of PSI. Our overall aim is to support members, and advocate for the people they work with, through supporting continuing professional development, offering a space to give and receive professional support and working to promote the field of intellectual disability psychology.
