Problems for prisoners with a mild intellectual disability

(full text available only in Dutch)

Summary

Signals from the field and international studies led to the supposition that people with a mild intellectual disability (MID) experience more problems in prison, and are more strongly affected by these problems, than other detainees. This study was conducted to answer the following questions:

  • What kind of problems do people with an MID experience in detention?
  • How do these problems differ from problems experienced by detainees without an MID?
  • In light of these problems, what are the specific needs of detainees with an MID?
