Abstract [en]

We do not know enough about how children and youths with intellectual disabilities are able to describe their experiences of abuse in real forensic interviews. Thus, this was the focus of the present study. We explored the quality of details when 33 children and youths with intellectual disabilities were interviewed about their abuse experiences. Their chronological ages were between 5.3 and 19.1 years (M = 12.1 years) when the last incident of abuse occurred. Unfortunately few invitations and a large number of leading and directive questions were asked. However, the invitations elicited much more central and peripheral information compared to any other question type. The children also to a large extent disagreed to leading and suggestive statements.
