TEL is a resource that shows you how to teach people with intellectual disability about end of life. It is designed for disability support professionals (DSPs) but is also helpful for families, health professionals, and educators. With assistance, people with intellectual disability might also find the TEL information helpful.
TEL reflects 10 years of Australian research on end of life and people with intellectual disability. TEL is an online version of the Dying to Talk project, an Australian Research Council funded partnership between The University of Sydney, Keele University in the UK, and Unisson Disability.
TEL comprises 12 modules. Modules include activities, case studies, videos, resources and links to the research.
TEL also offers a set of additional website resources.
Videos from the “Dying to Talk” research project give extra information.
TEL is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health under the Public Health and Chronic Disease Grant Program.
