DSAB 211 - Aging and Disability (3 Credits)

Prerequisite: None
The focus of this course is an exploration of aging and disability from multiple theoretical and applied perspectives. The socio-cultural construction of aging and individual and social models of aging and disability will be explored, along with the social dimensions that impact on the community integration of people aging with a variety of disabilities, but with an emphasis on intellectual disabilities. Students will learn the dynamics of aging from three major perspectives: person-centered, lifespan, and systems of care.
