Objectives To determine the association between exposure to disablism and the health and well-being of adults with intellectual disabilities. Study design Cross-sectional survey. Methods Secondary analysis of data extracted from the survey of Adults with Learning Difficulties in England 2003/4. Results Both self-reported exposure to bullying while at school and self-reported exposure to overt acts of disablism over the previous 12 months were associated with poorer self-reported health outcomes. In the vast majority of instances, these associations were stronger for people with lower levels of material or social resources. Conclusions Exposure to overt acts of disablism may contribute to the health inequalities experienced by people with intellectual disabilities.
