Negative attitudes and discrimination remain everyday realities for many individuals with intellectual disabilities. This chapter provides an overview of interventions aimed at reducing intellectual disability stigmaand encouraging more positive perceptions and interactions. Based on a multilevel model of stigma change interventions, this chapter provides an overview of interventions aimed at the intrapersonal, familial, widerinterpersonal, and structural levels to reduce stigma. The quality of the evidence on the range of interventions is considered and found to be rather thin on the whole. Priorities for research and intervention are identified.
