Association of sociodemographic characteristics of children with intellectual disability in Western Australia

Leonard, H., Petterson, B., De, Klerk, Zubrick, S. R., Glasson, E., Sanders, R.

Academic Literature

2005

This article seeks to investigate sociodemographic correlates of ID in children born in Western Australia. Aboriginal mothers, single mothers and mothers in the most socioeconomically disadvantaged 10% were all at increased risk of having a child with mild or moderate ID. The results of the study have implications both for further aetiological investigation as well as service provision for children with ID.
