About this Webinar:
When we think about disability and aging, we most often assume some type of change associated with growing older. What about persons aging with disability? Like all Americans, persons with intellectual or developmental disabilities are living longer, better; but, what does aging with disability look like? In this session, we discuss the similarities and differences between aging into and aging with disability. We also reconcile the roles of caregivers and family supports as the person with disability grows older.
- Understand aging and disability as a dynamic process.
- Reconcile models for aging and disability.
