Abstract

While it has been claimed that the basic psychological needs, autonomy supportive environments, and motivational regulations are universally important, application of these concepts to understand wellbeing in people with intellectual disability (ID) is lacking. Noud Frielink PhD will present longitudinal findings on the basic needs, motivational processes, and well-being of people with mild to borderline ID (N = 116). Significant associations were found between need satisfaction, autonomous motivation, and well-being, and between need frustration and ill-being. Current findings show the strength of prospective associations.
