Content Overview:

People with intellectual and developmental disabilities are living longer and large numbers are approaching the typical retirement age. In Australia, few pathways exist to support older workers to develop an active and socially inclusive retirement lifestyle. This webinar describes the implementation and outcomes of a highly successful transition to retirement (TTR) intervention used to support older workers to each join a mainstream community group of their choice.

Roger Stancliffe and Nathan Wilson are the two lead authors of the of the eBook Transition to retirement: A guide to inclusive practice which sets out in detail how to implement the TTR program and is supported by 26 embedded video clips. Stancliffe is Professor of Intellectual Disability at the University of Sydney’s Centre for Disability Research and Policy, and Wilson is Senior Lecturer, School of Nursing and Midwifery, Western Sydney University. With their TTR research colleagues, they have also published 8 peer-reviewed research articles on transition to retirement for people with IDD.
