Description

A health promotion curriculum that addresses the unique learning needs of adults with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (IDD) who require ongoing daily supports, have limited readings skills, and would benefit from learning about improved nutrition and activity.

Partnerships in Wellness was designed to be holistic addressing multiple aspects of well-being, with the belief that small changes done consistently can improve health for everyone. The curriculum takes a unique approach to teaching persons with IDD about healthy living: Persons with disabilities learn alongside a partner who does not have IDD. Partnerships in Wellness is structured in a way that both partners can learn new information, skills, and habits as it relates to their own health and well-being.
