Partnership in Wellness: A Training Curriculum for Adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

Description

Develops and field-tests a research-based, universally-designed, health promotion curriculum that addresses the unique learning needs of adults with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities who require ongoing daily supports, have limited readings skills, and would benefit from learning about improved nutrition and activity. The project's goal is to improve the quality of life and longevity of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities by increasing physical activity, reducing obesity and overweight, preventing lifestyle-related secondary conditions, and reducing associated health care costs.
