Guide for families
Create a guide for families and parents who have a family member with a developmental disability. This is not a literature review, but should be a professional guide (with references) that can be given to a family who has a young child with a disability.
The guide should “walk” the family through the process of early intervention, inclusion education, and transition into adulthood.
Additionally, the guide should give descriptions, definitions, and resources for all family members as the member with the disability transitions through the life cycle.
Throughout the guide, students must include at least 3 different types of supports or approaches that have been supported by recent literature to be effective when working with individuals with disabilities and their families (examples: individual parent therapy, family support groups, facilitated family activities, individual behavior interventions, sibling support groups, etc.)
