Goldschmidt, J., & American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. (2018). Teaching authentic cooking skills to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities: Active engagement. American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.
“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.” –publisher
Hewitt, A. S., Nye-Lengerman, K. M., & American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. (2019). Community living and participation for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.
This book “...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.” –publisher
Shogren, K. A., Wehmeyer, M. L., Martinis, J., Blanck, P. D., & Turnbull, H. R. (2019). Supported decision-making: Theory, research, and practice to enhance self-determination and quality of life. Cambridge University Press.
“The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) recognized that people with disabilities should have the right to exercise their legal capacity and identified 'supported decision-making' as a means by which people with disabilities can be directly involved in decisions that impact their lives. Offering an overview of its emergence in the disability field and highlighting emerging research, theory, and practice from legal, psychology, education, and health fields, this volume provides a much-needed theoretical and evidence base for supported decision-making. Evidence and strengths-based frameworks for understanding disability, supports, and their roles in promoting supported decision-making are synthesized.” –publisher
