This bilingual report presents the challenges and rewards of caregiving expressed by Latino families who were part of a national study of families caring for adolescent and adult sons or daughters with autism. Families share their thoughts about their children living at home and away from home, their perspectives on caregiving, how their lives have changed, and what they have learned from this experience.

Family Handbook on Future Planning

Family Handbook on Future Planning (2003). Davis, Sharon, (Ed.). Produced by The Arc of the United States and the RRTC on Aging with Developmental Disabilities.

This guide helps families take the initial steps to address the future personal, legal, and financial needs of their sons or daughters with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It teaches families how to review and inventory their relative’s needs and strengths, determine what the plan should include, and locate qualified professionals and resources to finalize the plan. It is an update of The Arc’s 1991 handbook on future planning and the 1989 publication How to Provide for Their Future.
