Synopsis:
This timely and important publication provides a concise review of what we know about ten key areas in the field of IDD and what that knowledge means for future developments in public policy, research, and practice. Developed as a foundational review of the knowledge base in preparation for the 2015 National Goals conference, the book examines the following areas: - Aging, retirement, and end of life - Education - Employment and economic self-sufficiency - Health and wellness - Justice - Long-term supports and services - Self-determination and self-advocacy - Social inclusion - Supports for families - Workforce issues This book will be particularly useful to practitioners, policy analysts, researchers, and students. Taken as a whole, this work concisely illustrates the gaps between the existing evidence and what must still be demonstrated, what practices we know to be effective and contemporary strategies for implementing those practices, and where we are and where we aspire to be in our nation's public policy.
