Community Services and Supports for Adults with Disabilities: Evolving Approaches

ID: 3025WEB

Over the past years, the approach utilized in supporting adults with developmental disabilities has been evolving and changing from an institution-based service delivery system to a community-based system of supports and services. This has also led to shifting of roles and responsibilities for the professionals, from one of organizing services to working with a person to determine what they want in their life. In this webinar, participants will be presented with an overview of these changes, the current approaches to planning, and their impact on the delivery system. Participants will be given the opportunity to apply these planning methods as they look for ways to assist adults with developmental disabilities to plan their futures.

Starting Out: From Diagnosis to Early Childhood

ID: 3008WEB

Involvement with service systems for individuals with developmental disabilities begins for some families when their children are infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. Families' experiences with early intervention and early childhood special education services set the tone for their participation with service systems throughout their children's age span. In this webinar, participants will be presented with an overview of New Jersey's Early Intervention and Early Childhood Special Education Systems, including the process of identification and referral, evaluation, program planning, delivery of services, and transition. The roles of social workers and the rights of families under each system will also be highlighted. [Required for Developmental Disabilities Certificate Program]

The Realities of Growing Old Together for Adults with Developmental Disabilities and their Caregivers

ID: 3009WEB

Families have always been the primary caregivers for individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (I/DD) throughout their lives. In the U.S. today, over 75% of adults with I/DD live with their families: this means there are nearly one million households in which an adult with I/DD is living with a caregiver/caregivers over the age of 60. While we will look at generalities of age-related changes in people with IDD, particular attention will be paid in this webinar to the cumulative impact of a shared aging trajectory between many adults with I/DD, their family members, and the workforce of paid caregivers.*Previous title: Growing Old Together: Aging and Family Caregiving [Required for Developmental Disabilities Certificate Program]
