This chapter outlines a variety of therapeutic interventions that are more commonly used with people with intellectual disabilities to help them address challenges to their health and well-being. Typically, some of these interventions are used by specialist therapists, but increasingly nurses for people with intellectual disabilities are developing specialist and advanced areas of practice. Each section, where appropriate, not only describes the intervention in detail, but also identifies the evidence base supporting it. Nurses for people with intellectual disabilities and students of nursing will find this chapter a useful resource in their everyday practice.
