Diagnostic Manual – Intellectual Disability (DM-ID)
The National Association for the Dually Diagnosed (NADD), in association with the American Psychiatric Association (APA), developed a Manual that is designed to be an adaptation of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition—Text Revision (DSM-IV-TR). The title of this Manual is the Diagnostic Manual — Intellectual Disability (DM-ID): A Textbook of Diagnosis of Mental Disorders in Persons with Intellectual Disability. Grounded in evidence based methods and supported by the expert-consensus model, Diagnostic Manual — Intellectual Disability (DM-ID): A Textbook of Diagnosis of Mental Disorders in Persons with Intellectual Disability offers a broad examination of the topic, including a description of each disorder, a summary of the DSM-IV-TR diagnostic criteria, a review of the literature and research and an evaluation of the strength of evidence supporting the literature conclusions, a discussion of the etiology and pathogenisis of the disorders, and adaptations of the diagnostic criteria for the ID population.

“The NADD competency-based clinical certification has provided me with an avenue to verify a dual diagnosis specialty. My ability to provide clinical supports to individuals supported both by medical assistance and private insurances has been expanded by allowing me to gain access to closed insurance networks. These networks had been closed to me prior to receiving this certification, allowing this population to remain largely unserved outside of community mental health centers.”
