The fourth attachment classification of disorganized is related to parents who behave in ways which unpredictably frighten their c­hildren through showing their own fear or through maltreat­ ment of their children. This has been found to be clinically important and p­redictive of negative outcomes for the child regarding their e­xperience of stress, emotional distress and behavioural disturbances including aggressive behaviours and dissociative behaviours (see Van IJzendoorn, Schuengel and Bakermans‐Kranenburg, 1999 for a detailed review).

Bowlby (1969) suggested that insecure attachment relationships developed when internal working models were not updated and revised, leaving them inadequate and inaccurate. Therefore, if c­aregivers/family members do not update their internal working models in line with developments in their child’s cognitive, social and physical development, this will increase the risk of subsequent difficulties in their attachment relationships. This is important to consider when working with families who have children with ID, as parents’ distress and grief may negatively affect their ability to attune to the reality of their children’s actual abilities and may also lead to a child viewing themselves as being unacceptable due to their disability (see Chapter 3).
