This chapter presents case examples of bereavement among those with developmental disabilities; a review of the typical stages of grief, contrasted with what is known about the bereavement experiences of those with developmental disabilities; a psychological model of stress in which fried is an example; an application of the stress model to the population of those with autism and other developmental disabilities; the problem of pathological grief; the influence of cognitive and developmental factors on the experience of bereavement; and educational programs that have been developed to teach those with developmental disabilities about death and to assist with bereavement.
