Product Description Disabled individuals face numerous limiting prejudices and challenges in mainstream American Society. Fortunately, current disability legislation has improved, mandating: (1) Greater involvement of individuals with severe disabilities, (2) Alternative approaches to vocational placement, (3) Provision of independent living services, (4) Expansion of rehabilitation/habilitation services for those individuals with developmental disabilities (5) Protection of the civil rights of people with disabilities and the removal of environmental barriers. Packed with 16 chapters of comprehensive and empowering information, this book presents theoretical and practical assistance in translating those mandates into positive action. It is this dual process of individual and environmental proactivity that can maximize the rehabilitation of disabled individuals. This book is not only for the dedicated rehabilitation counselor, but also for students attending an introductory course at the master s- or senior-level and in-service directors who design informative training programs. Includes more than 1200 references, 350 of which are new. About the Author Stanford E.
