This chapter presents mindfulness and mindfulness-based intervention studies involving individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDDs) in such a way as to allow practitioners in the field of IDDs to understand and make good use of mindfulness practices. We introduce mindfulness in its contemporary and traditional contexts. We then discuss why and how mindfulness-based interventions have been used for individuals with IDDs. We review mindfulness studies involving individuals with IDDs according to their intervention and research design and their methods. Finally, we present recommendations to strengthen the applications of mindfulness as an evidence-based practice.
