Person-Centered Planning for Later Life: Death and Dying – A Curriculum for Adults with Mental Retardation (2000). Sterns, H.L., Kennedy, E.A. & Sed, C.M.

It covers the concept of death; experiencing and coping with grief, mourning, comfort, and support; and death-related rituals (visitations and funerals). The curriculum consists of five in-class lessons and one field trip, which emphasize active participation through both verbal and visual presentation of materials. The instructor’s guide provides a script for each lesson and includes guidelines for planning and administering each lesson. Each participant has a student notebook that accompanies the instructor’s training curriculum. Each participant chooses a support person to help him/her review the lessons and complete assignments.
