Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. develop and implement interventions, strategies, and supports for minority youth with intellectual disabilities.
  2. conduct community conversations with their own communities to promote inclusion for minority youth with intellectual disabilities.
  3. promote diversity in development and learning as it relates to minority youth with ID.

Description

What does inclusion mean for youth with intellectual disabilities (ID) who also belong to racial, sexual, and cultural minority groups? We present findings from studies focused on youth with intellectual disabilities who identify with the following groups: African American, South and Southeast Asian American, LGBTQ, and foster care youth. Their expressed views and needs will be discussed. Practitioners will learn how to consider, develop, and implement supports to promote inclusion for minority youth with ID.
