The purpose of this environmental scan was to determine the current state of the literature on the development and content of curricula on CLC that specifically address the intersection of intellectual and developmental disabilities and racially, ethnically, and culturally diverse populations. Analysis of these findings will be used, in conjunction with other project findings, to formulate a set of recommendations to the developmental disabilities network and particularly UCEDDs for future efforts to enhance curricula and training activities that address this intersection.
There are two phases to the environmental scan to identify curricula and training materials that address the intersection of cultural diversity, cultural and linguistic competence, and intellectual and developmental disabilities for use by UCEDDs.
The environmental scan conducted by the Embedding project consisted of
two phases designed to identify curricula, training materials, and
extant literature focused on the intersection of cultural diversity,
CLC, and intellectual and developmental disabilities. The first phase
identified potential materials from the AUCD Diversity and Inclusion
Toolkit and reviewed these materials based on vetting criteria developed
by the Project team. Access the criteria in Appendix A. The report on
vetted materials from the AUCD Toolkit can be accessed on the Embedding
website at Report on Identifying and Vetting Curricula and Training Materials
