This paper focuses on the comparison of sense of humour and attitudes to humour in a peer group of 10-11 year-olds. It surveys children with normal intellectual abilities and children with mild intellectual disability (mild ID). The SHQ-6 questionnaire and a set of cartoons were used as research tools. Although children with mild ID regard humourists as irritating and they feel uncomfortable in situations where someone jokes, they generally laugh more. Does it mean they understand jokes better, if they laugh more?
