Understanding the mental health problems of children who have learning disabilities presents huge challenges across many domains. This paper examines some of the assessment frameworks that may be used, offers clinical guidance on collecting information and suggests ways in which various theoretical approaches can be used to derive comprehensive case formulations. An emphasis is placed on the use of structured methods to improve reliability and validity.
