Health U.: A Nutrition Curriculum for Teenagers with Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities
Developed by researchers and clinicians at UMass Medical School/E.K. Shriver Center.
The Health U. curriculum is designed to be taught by registered dietitians or educators who have had college-level courses in nutrition. It contains age-appropriate nutrition education materials for adolescents and young adults with mild to moderate intellectual disabilities. The goal of the Health U. program is to encourage a healthy lifestyle and includes 10 lessons, each of which provides a short discussion where new concepts are introduced, an activity that provides hands-on learning, time to engage in movement/physical activity, and a “taste test” that encourages expansion of students’ food repertoires.


Health Matters: The Exercise and Nutrition Health Education Curriculum for People with Developmental Disabilities
A research-based, field-tested program composed of 59 one-hour sessions for professionals to implement to help adults with disabilities make the best choices about health, exercise, and nutrition.


Teaching Authentic Cooking Skills to Adults With Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities: Active Engagement

This book provides detailed information on the Active Engagement program which was developed and tested by the author. This is not a cookbook, although there are a number of adaptive recipes embedded as examples throughout. This book outlines how to implement the Active Engagement program including cooking as nutritional intervention, a teaching framework for cooking skills, teaching basic skill sets with adaptive tools, and more.
