[Throughout the world, children and adults with intellectual disabilities face social exclusion, marginalization, discrimination, and abuse. This chapter provides an overview of the effects of stigma in perpetuating social inequalities and violating the basic human rights of people with intellectual disabilities. The impact of stigma on a number of life domains associated with well-being and quality of life are addressed, including poverty, safety, education, employment, community integration and participation, health, intimate relationships and reproductive rights, and self-determination. Continued research efforts are needed to more fully understand the effects of stigma across these domains.]
