Eligibility Criteria


ILDP works with adults with a diagnosis of global learning disabilities. To obtain a diagnosis of global learning disabilities and be eligible to receive services from ILDP, the person must meet all three of the following criteria:

  • significant impairment in intellectual functioning (IQ score of 69 or below on a standardised assessment or equivalent)
  • a concurrent significant impairment in social and adaptive functioning
  • onset of these impairments is before the age of 18 years (i.e. the difficulties are developmental in origin, rather than acquired through a stroke, head injury, long-standing mental illness or drug/alcohol use).

Please note: People who have specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia and dyspraxia (and who do not have an IQ score of 69 or less) are not considered to have global learning disabilities.


Adults with: 

  • learning difficulties such as dyslexia and dyspraxia
  • a diagnosis of autism without learning disability 
  • acquired brain injuries.
