Social information processing (SIP) skills have been measured mainly in ambiguous peer situations. Some SIP cognitions, however, depend on situation type and setting, such as the interpretation of intent. Adolescents with an intellectual disability (ID) or low cognitive functioning (LF) have a higher risk for SIP deficits and externalizing behavior problems. Due to their cognitive disability it is expected that not only ambiguous, but also accidental situations may be problematic to process for these adolescents. Several situation-specific and pervasive SIP biases and deficits were investigated, in order to increase insight into social-cognitive and behavioral problems of youth with ID.
