August 1 Community Training on the Transition to Retirement
On August 1, Roger Stancliffe will lead a community training on helping adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) to transition to an active and inclusive retirement. Stancliffe is partner staff at ICI and Professor of Intellectual Disability at the University of Sydney's [Australia] Centre for Disability Research and Policy. The training is intended for practitioners, Direct Support Professionals, community members, and anyone interested in helping older people with IDD participate actively in the community as they choose. The event, which runs from 9 a.m. until 12:30 p.m., takes place at the University of Minnesota Robert J. Jones Urban Research and Outreach-Engagement Center (UROC), 2001 Plymouth Avenue North, in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Space at the training is limited, so registration is required. Admission is $25 for advocates and family members; and $50 for all others. The registration deadline is Friday, July 28. A copy of the Transition to Retirement ebook on Google Play is included with each registration. The event is sponsored by ICI's Research and Training Center on Community Living, The Arc MN, The Arc Greater Twin Cities, and Living Well Disability Services.
