Active Engagement: Resolving Common Problems for Individuals with IDD in Learning to Cook

Date: February 7, 2019
Time: 4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. EST

This presentation will draw on a newly published volume from AAIDD entitled Teaching Authentic Cooking Skills to Adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities: Active Engagement. The author, Janice Goldschmidt, will provide a quick overview of the book, then launch into a demonstration of how to address the most common issues that arise when supporting acquisition of cooking skills. Each person with IDD has unique challenges and abilities; consequently, there is no single path to development of authentic and generalizable cooking skills for this population. At the same time, there are common difficulties that are manifested across this cohort and which can be anticipated - and addressed -- when designing appropriate activities.
