Ya Got People - Helping people with developmental disabilities deal with grief, bereavement and loss

A radically humane and practical approach to supporting people with developmental disabilities who experience grief, bereavement and loss.

Radical because this book confronts stereotypes about those with disabilities. Humane because there is a deep grasp of humanity and disability. Practical because there are tools to assist those experiencing loss. The fact that the authors have disabilities may account for the empathy on each page. They know what it is to be stripped of humanity and classified as "non-feeling" disabled people. They advocate for the right for all people to feel grief while providing insight and ideas for how to better support. Carolyn is a woman with albinism and visual impairment. Jeff is a man with cerebral palsy (or "Secret Paws" as his young son says it). They make a unique training team. Together, they have written this almost miraculous book. Be ready to learn, to grow and develop a true sense of empathy for all who grieve.

NB: The library resources are available for ADSA library members to borrow. Unfortunately we do not sell direct to the general public.
