    A Systematic Approach to Personal Support Plans

    This book is a concise practical guide for programs involved in developing, implementing, and evaluating personal support plans. The emphasis is on basing the development of these plans on good information. The results of assessments using the SIS--Aand the SIS--C can be used to develop personal support plans with this approach.

    The steps involved in developing personal support plans using the systematic approach are described in detail, including each of the components and implementation steps. These involve:  understanding the person; understanding the person’s support needs; developing, implementing, and reviewing the plan; and evaluating the outcomes. The last section of the book presents four exhibits provided by organizations that have incorporated one or more of the components and implementation steps in their programs.

      Teaching Authentic Cooking Skills to Adults With Inte...

      Congratulations to Janice Goldschmidt, AAIDD best-selling author of Teaching Authentic Cooking Skills to Adults With Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities: Active Engagement.  As the author of this work, Ms. Goldschmidt was awarded the 2018 Excellence in Written Communication award from the Behavioral Health Nutrition Dietetics Practice Group of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. 

       

      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.

                  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.
