Many of us serve people with intellectual disability who are living longer and longer lives. Wanted to pass along the information and link below about this free webinar which was forwarded to me by the Association of Regional Center Agencies (ARCA).
N.B. Free CEU’s are available. Also, it’s scheduled for 10-1:00 Eastern time which is 7-10:00 Pacific time.
Webinar: Growing Older – New Challenges, New Needs
The Rehabilitation Research and Training Institute is holding a free webinar on aging and people with intellectual disabilities on June 9, 2014, 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. ET. People with intellectual disabilities encounter many of the same issues associated with aging as do people who do not have an intellectual disability. The webinar will examine the physical, cognitive, and behavioral changes typical of the aging process and explore, as well, how these changes manifest for someone with an intellectual disability. Free CEUs are available.
