‘Talking End of Life ...with people with intellectual disability (TEL)’ VIDEO about online toolkit

People with intellectual disability should learn about dying and death

Death is a part of life. Too often death is a taboo in our society, and people avoid talking about or planning for it. This taboo is even more obvious when people with intellectual disability are part of these conversations. People with intellectual disability should learn about dying and death just as they learn about every other aspect of life. Teaching about the end of life is hard though.

Talking End of Life ...with people with intellectual disability (TEL) shows you how to teach people with intellectual disability about the end of life.

TEL is designed for disability support workers but is also helpful for others including families, health professionals, and educators.

Watch the video to see Professor Roger Stancliffe from the University of Sydney describe why TEL is important.
