Adult Learning Disability Results

Thank you for completing the Intellectual Disability Screening Questionnaire (IDSQ). The IDSQ was developed to give a quick and easy indication of whether a person is likely to have a learning disability or not.

It is based on extensive research, is valid and reliable, can be completed quickly and can discriminate with high levels of accuracy between those who have a learning disability and those who do not.


Your code:

You are:



Existing conditions:

Does the person speak English as a second language?:

Your answers to the questions indicate that the person is likely to have a learning disability.

If you continue to have concerns about the person, you may wish to contact your local services (for example GP or learning disability service) to ask for advice. You can also visit the British Psychological Society website, which provides information about chartered applied psychologists in your local area in the UK, who may be able to provide a private assessment of the person:

Please note that, while the IDSQ has high levels of accuracy, it is less accurate under the following circumstances:

  • If the person is aged between 16 and 18.
  • If the person has an existing condition that may impact on the results of the screening questionnaire, such as a physical disability, a learning difficulty, or Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • If the person has English as a second language
  • If you had to guess the answers to any of the questions

Please remember that the screening questionnaire is just that: an initial indicator of whether someone might have a learning disability or not. Further professional psychological assessment is always required to confirm this.

We would like to hear your views on the WebApp and screening questionnaire to help us to improve them in future. If you would like to leave your feedback, as part of our evaluation project, please click here

The project has received ethical approval from Department of Psychology Ethics Committee at Northumbria University.
