Background This study explores the relationship that the people with an intellectual disability have with their 'learning disabled' identity and the influence of intellectual disability services on this relationship. Methods Information was collected using three methodologies: (1) audit of referrals to a community psychology service for people with intellectual disabilities; (2) service-users focus group; (3) survey of the attitudes of intellectual disability service-providers. Results The results indicate that the conflict about an intellectually disabled identity may be an area of unmet need in services for people with intellectual disabilities. Conclusions There is a need for careful consideration of the ways in which this identity is managed by service-providers.
