dc.description.abstractThe literature review addresses the bereavement experience of children with developmental disabilities (DD), as it is often not publicly acknowledged or socially supported by professionals or caregivers (Doka, 1998). This review draws from the fields of disability, grief/bereavement and counselling to assist counselling psychologists and alternative professionals in their improvement of the supports and care they are currently providing to bereaved children with DD. Recommendations from the analysis of the existing literature include meeting the child where they are at, acknowledging that further psychoeducation on death and emotions may be required, not underestimating the child’s response to grief, and consulting whenever necessary with other professionals. Future research directions are also addressed to focus attention on the efficacy of the techniques and models in bereavement counselling, and to highlight the perspectives of bereaved children with DD.en_US
