6 Scopus citations


Data are provided on the outcome of an assessment on a knowledge of aging and futures planning tool administered to 38 adults, age 40 and older, with an intellectual disability living in community residences in Israel. The subjects participated in the Later Life Planning Training Program (LLPTP-Heller, Factor, Stern, & Sutton, 1996) which is designed to teach people with intellectual disability about later life planning issues, and increase their participation in choice making. Comparisons were made between two samples, one Israeli and one American. Differences were found on three areas of the LLPTP: Choice-making, Life Satisfaction, and Social Support. These were attributed to variations in living situations and cultural differences. Within group differences for the Israeli sample were observed for age, sex, and living arrangement (hostel and apartments) in the areas of Choice-making and Life Satisfaction. Implications of these differences for the delivery of LLPTP are discussed.
