      Lives and Legacies of People With Intellectual Disabi...

      This unique book constructs a new way to view the cultural contributions of the lives of people with ID. The legacy of people with ID is as meaningful and important as any other, and this idea is explored through individual stories set within the social and cultural construction of the idea of disability. The book is intended to be instrumental in moving toward a new moral community. A wide range of relevant literature is reviewed, to consider quality of life and the history of treatment of people with ID. The importance of social context in defining ID is stressed, as is the role of supports in ensuring participation of people with ID in the meaningful activity of everyday life.

          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.
