On January 23, 2019, the American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AAIDD) will present a vital webinar on end-of-life issues for people with intellectual disability and their caregivers. Learn about major research findings on understanding and planning for end of life by people with intellectual disability.
 
The webinar will also cover key results from a controlled intervention study which trained disability support workers to teach people with intellectual disability about dying and death, and evaluated the outcomes. The webinar will also introduce and demonstrate a major new, free online resource, "Talking End of Life" (TEL). TEL is designed for users to gain the knowledge, skills, resources and confidence to help people with intellectual disability understand and plan for end of life.
