Bio:
Jacqueline McGinley, LMSW is a PhD candidate at the University at Buffalo School of Social Work. Jackie has been supporting and advocating for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities for over 15 years. She began as a volunteer with the Special Olympics and the Chemung ARC. Then, after obtaining her MSW (Rutgers University) and attending a Certificate Program in Developmental Disabilities (The Boggs Center on Developmental Disabilities), Jackie worked for over four years in nonprofit disability organizations in positions ranging from social worker to behaviorist to administrator. As a researcher, Jackie has drawn upon her experiences in practice and focused on improving care for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities who are nearing life’s end and their families. She is the author of several articles on this subject including “From Nonissue to Healthcare Crisis: A Historical Review of Aging and Dying with an Intellectual and Developmental Disability”, which was published in the journal Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.

Description

This workshop will explore the unique aging and end-of-life issues faced by older adults with intellectual and development disabilities (IDD) and those who care for them. Given the unprecedented number of adults with IDD reaching advanced age, this is a timely and essential workshop for all professionals working with this population. The training will provide you with the skills and knowledge necessary to “get it right” (http://bit.ly/1NoxZey) when caring for this vulnerable and historically underserved population.

Content will focus on the demographic characteristics of aging adults with IDD, including helping you to achieve a deeper understanding of their late-life experiences ranging from healthy aging to chronic conditions and serious illness to end-of-life and bereavement. Issues of special importance will be examined, including: communication, caregiving, service coordination, shared decision-making, and ethical considerations. Throughout the workshop, you will be provided with tools and resources that can be immediately implemented into your daily practice, including evidence-based assessments, interdisciplinary interventions, and community-based resources that dovetail with the NYS Office for People with Developmental Disabilities policies and services.

Learning Objectives:
• Examine the distinct needs of aging adults with IDD and the recently-emerged “demographic imperative”;
• Describe theories of aging and disability that provide a conceptual framework for understanding how people with IDD age;
• Explain the aging trajectory of people with IDD, including specific subpopulations of older adults with IDD likely to be encounter in practice and implications for your provision of aging and end-of-life services;
• Apply issues of special importance that broadly affect people with IDD as they age and approach the end of life to your service provision;
• Use assessment and intervention strategies to support older adults with IDD and their families in a manner that is person-centered and grounded in a strong evidence-base.

Research: Current theories of aging and disability will support your conceptualization of the challenges confronting the IDD population. This course is based upon theories of aging, including developmental theories and modern biological theories of aging. It is also based upon theories of disability, including the World Health Organization’s framework (The International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health: www.who.int/classifications/icf/en/) and social models of disability. This course draws influence from Ecological Systems Theory by attending to the relationship between the micro-macro-mezzo environments for people with IDD as they age and reach life’s end.

Target Audience: social workers, mental health practitioners, creative arts therapists, marriage and family therapists, psychologists, service coordinators, medical professionals, and other interested individuals.
