Aims to provide people with disabilities and their support people with an overview and an understanding of the grief process, to highlight the range of needs of people with disabilities who may be grieving and to provide effective strategies for supporting people with disabilities in dealing with grief and loss. Organised in two sections; the first has been developed for people with disabilities themselves, written in plain English and using illustrations, the second section has been developed for people who support people with disabilities, written as guidelines that may be helpful to families and service providers who wish to actively assist the grieving person with disability.
