HealthMatters for People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities: Building Communities of Practice for Health

A Research to Policy Brief from AUCD and UIC's RRTCDD

The emergence of accessible health promotion initiatives for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) over the past 20 years demonstrates great promise for improving their health status.

A Personal Story of a Cultural Broker (MA UCEDD/LEND)

By Oanh Thi Thu Bui, Diversity Fellow, Institute for Community Inclusion, UMass Boston

When parents reach out to me, their stories may be very complicated, requiring intensive support in multiple areas, from medical and educational to social support. A few families have contacted me more than 150 times over the course of one year, both in person, or on the phone or via email. Communicating with schools and participating in school activities is often not part of Asian culture. Many of these families have high expectations for their children, but they don't expect a child with disability to be independent and to work. It's been satisfying to see some of the parents who attend my support group get more involved in their children's education. In Part 2 of our series about cultural brokering, Oanh shares more about how her organization supports Vietnamese parents whose children have disability.

SSA Medical Evaluation

Talking Points for Treating Physician Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

Talking Points for Treating Physician Notice of Proposed Rulemaking The proposed rules will not increase accuracy or timeliness of decisions: These rules will not lead to more accurate decisions. They will not decrease processing time, either. If anything, they will lead to more appeals, more remands, and more delays. The process of training adjudicators on this complex new regulation and adapting SSA systems to comply with it will be difficult, time-consuming, and expensive.
