 Full Description: 
This training curriculum was a result of the collaborative effort of researchers, trainers and self-advocates from The University of Illinois at Chicago and The University of Akron. This project was one of the activities of the Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Aging with Developmental Disabilities (formerly the “Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Aging with Mental Retardation”). This project built upon the knowledge gained by key researchers participating in the first three years of the previous Research and Training Center Consortium on Aging and Developmental Disabilities. The initial version of the curriculum was developed for the training project "Impact of a person-centered later life planning training program for older adults with mental retardation."

The chapters include the following topics:

Choice Making
Rights and Responsibilities
Making Healthy Choices As We Grow Older
Exercise and Other Healthy Choices
Free Time Activities
Work / retirement: Possible Schedule Changes in Later Life
Friendships and Support Networks
Places We Live

Plus more!

The Curriculum is designed to intergrate choice and practice throughout the training, build in a support person who can help implement what is learned in the sessions and provide support to the trainees, and provide role play and feedback regarding the person's assertiveness in advocating for one's self.
