Now and the future: Living, dying and death - Needs, expectations and experiences of people with intellectual disabilities and their families

People with intellectual disabilities are still often denied opportunities for full involvement in decision-making regarding their own life and death, and the life and death of those close to them that others take for granted. Those with more severe disabilities have had their quality of life challenged - to the extent of questioning whether their lives are worth living. This conference will explore these issues as well as the views of people who have helped individuals with intellectual disability to cope with difficult and traumatic issues in creative and positive ways.
