DC-LD is a new classification system providing operationalised diagnostic criteria for psychiatric disorders, intended for use with adults with moderate to profound learning disabilities. It may also be used in conjunction with the ICD and DSM-IV manuals in a complementary way, when working with adults with mild learning disabilities.

Introduction. Psychosocial interventions have been described and evaluated with respect to a range of physical and mental health difficulties for people without intellectual disabilities (e.g. National Institute for Clinical Excellence, ) and are considered essential parts of the delivery of mental health services to people with severe mental health problems (Department of Health, ).

Psychometric tests are a standard and scientific method used to measure individuals' mental capabilities and behavioural style. Psychometric tests are designed to measure candidates' suitability for a role based on the required personality characteristics and aptitude (or cognitive abilities).

They identify the extent to which candidates. Psychometric instruments identify thinking styles, emotional processes and behavior patterns that contribute to mental illness. Some tests are diagnostic (they point to a condition that was previously unknown e.g.

personality style) while other tests are prognostic (they gauge the severity of depression or anxiety or IQ and watch it change over.
