    Teaching Authentic Cooking Skills to Adults With Inte...

    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.

    Active Engagement is based on a framework of good nutritional principles and evidence-based instructional practices, including individualization, direct instruction, and experiential learning. This is not a cookbook, although there are a number of adaptive recipes embedded as examples throughout.

    This book provides detailed information on the Active Engagement program and how to
    implement it, organized into the following topics:

        • Cooking as nutritional intervention
        • A teaching framework for cooking skills
        • Developing cooking instruction around the patterns of American consumption
        • Teaching basic skill sets with adaptive tools
        • A new approach to recipes
        • Appliances from the universal to the specialized
        • Exploring different contexts for the development of cooking skills
        • Supporting cooking skills with food skills

        Diagnostic Adaptive Behavior Scale User's Manual & 25...

        This product bundle is one copy of the DABS User's Manual and a pack of 25 DABS interview forms. 

        The Diagnostic Adaptive Behavior Scale™
        (DABS) is now available. The DABS is an instrument for assessing the adaptive behavior of people between the ages of 4 and 21 for the purpose of determining whether the person meets the second criterion for a diagnosis of intellectual disability (ID). The second criterion is a significant limitation in adaptive behavior as expressed in conceptual, social, and practical adaptive skills. The DABS is a norm-referenced instrument that uses data obtained from an interview with a respondent who knows the person very well.

        The DABS has a number of unique features that support its precision, accuracy, validity, and credibility in making a diagnosis of ID, including:

        • Measures some aspects of adaptive behavior that are not currently measured by other standardized instruments, including naiveté, gullibility, and technology-based skills.
        • Designed using item response theory (IRT) and reliably measure individual performance levels across the continuum of adaptive skills and ages.
        • Provides precise information to assist users in determining significant limitations in adaptive behavior.

        Because the DABS relies on IRT, it cannot be scored by hand, and requires a specially developed computer program for scoring. AAIDD’s online scoring platform for the DABS can be easily used for a nominal fee, and it provides reports for each assessment scored. The scoring platform is available through www.aaidd.org/dabs . A complimentary, single-use voucher code for the scoring platform is included with the purchase of each manual.

                State of the States in Intellectual and Developmental...

                The State of the States in Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities is a thorough and one-of-a-kind analytical study of public spending and programmatic trends in intellectual and developmental disability (IDD) services within the United States. In the 11th edition, extensive analyses are presented on each state’s performance over a period of 40 years, through fiscal year 2015. Launched in 1982, the study is directed by noted researcher Dr. David Braddock.  This informative and data-rich study is a must-have reference for anyone working in the disabilities field.
                The 11th edition presents analyses of: out-of-home placements in 2015; federal, state, and local Medicaid spending in FY 2013-2015; fiscal effort (a state’s spending for IDD services from federal, state, and local sources per $1,000 aggregate statewide personal income); and annual cost of care across years for residents in five settings, followed by a look to the future in terms of demographic and legal forces, implications of changes to Medicaid, and key challenges foreseen for the future.  As in previous editions, the 11th edition also provides statistical profiles for the 50 states and the District of Columbia, as well as for the country as a whole.
