      Community Living and Participation for People With In...

      Community Living and Participation for People With Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities is an exploration of how to create the ideal conditions to facilitate community living and participation for people with IDD. The book addresses the complex and ever-evolving dimensions related to both the place of community and the feeling of community, including living arrangements, work, other daytime activities, financial resources, relationships, personal interests, health and well-being, faith, opportunities for learning and personal growth, self-determination and informed decision making, and rights and responsibilities as a citizen. The following topics are addressed specifically: using person-centered and positive support practices, housing, employment, social inclusion and relationships, self-determination and self-advocacy, supported decision making, health and wellness, planning for healthy and engaged aging, practices that promote quality outcomes, and the direct support workforce.

      Each chapter includes advance organizers, discussion questions, and a resource list. The book is ideal as an ancillary textbook at the undergraduate or graduate levels and as a staff development tool.

        A Systematic Approach to Personal Support Plans

        This book is a concise practical guide for programs involved in developing, implementing, and evaluating personal support plans. The emphasis is on basing the development of these plans on good information. The results of assessments using the SIS--Aand the SIS--C can be used to develop personal support plans with this approach.

        The steps involved in developing personal support plans using the systematic approach are described in detail, including each of the components and implementation steps. These involve:  understanding the person; understanding the person’s support needs; developing, implementing, and reviewing the plan; and evaluating the outcomes. The last section of the book presents four exhibits provided by organizations that have incorporated one or more of the components and implementation steps in their programs.

          Teaching Authentic Cooking Skills to Adults With Inte...

          Congratulations to Janice Goldschmidt, AAIDD best-selling author of Teaching Authentic Cooking Skills to Adults With Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities: Active Engagement.  As the author of this work, Ms. Goldschmidt was awarded the 2018 Excellence in Written Communication award from the Behavioral Health Nutrition Dietetics Practice Group of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. 


          This remarkable book is a unique instructional tool with which
          direct support professionals and program directors can address two
          critical issues in working with adults with IDD: promoting healthy
          eating habits and teaching real-life skills that will develop greater
          independence and self-determination. Active Engagement is the
          program developed by the author and tested and proven through
          her years of teaching these skills successfully.

          Traditionally, people with IDD are the passive recipients of meals
          prepared by others. But everyone, regardless of ability level, should
          be able to make choices concerning the food they eat and to learn
          to prepare food – or to actively participate in preparing food – for
          themselves and others. Teaching these skills to adults with IDD
          requires a new instructional model, which this book provides.

          Active Engagement is based on a framework of good nutritional principles and evidence-based instructional practices, including individualization, direct instruction, and experiential learning. This is not a cookbook, although there are a number of adaptive recipes embedded as examples throughout.

          This book provides detailed information on the Active Engagement program and how to
          implement it, organized into the following topics:

              • Cooking as nutritional intervention
              • A teaching framework for cooking skills
              • Developing cooking instruction around the patterns of American consumption
              • Teaching basic skill sets with adaptive tools
              • A new approach to recipes
              • Appliances from the universal to the specialized
              • Exploring different contexts for the development of cooking skills
              • Supporting cooking skills with food skills

              State of the States in Intellectual and Developmental...

              The State of the States in Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities is a thorough and one-of-a-kind analytical study of public spending and programmatic trends in intellectual and developmental disability (IDD) services within the United States. In the 11th edition, extensive analyses are presented on each state’s performance over a period of 40 years, through fiscal year 2015. Launched in 1982, the study is directed by noted researcher Dr. David Braddock.  This informative and data-rich study is a must-have reference for anyone working in the disabilities field.
              The 11th edition presents analyses of: out-of-home placements in 2015; federal, state, and local Medicaid spending in FY 2013-2015; fiscal effort (a state’s spending for IDD services from federal, state, and local sources per $1,000 aggregate statewide personal income); and annual cost of care across years for residents in five settings, followed by a look to the future in terms of demographic and legal forces, implications of changes to Medicaid, and key challenges foreseen for the future.  As in previous editions, the 11th edition also provides statistical profiles for the 50 states and the District of Columbia, as well as for the country as a whole.
