Short Description:
Understanding Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities is geared to multiple courses and interdisciplinary studies across dynamic campus communities. Though primarily presenting foundational topics, this introductory information also contains resources for suggested advanced study. While some may find interest in the wider range of topics, our material will aid comprehension though more focused investigation. Both undergraduate and some graduate students thus can gain an interdisciplinary foundation in this vital work. Students will gain information essential to the historical, psychosocial, cultural and political study of key issues with contextual understanding of legal rights, advocacy efforts and potential needs of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Students will be introduced to Disability Studies theory, vocabulary and models
