This book is based on research and scholarship produced by the Meyerson Disability Research Project (MDRP) at the University of Arizona. Its chapters are divided into two major sections: 1) Disability Research Areas and 2) Disability Policy Areas. The first section addresses some relatively new areas of research and scholarship with adults and children, such as the use of technology (e.g., videoconferencing and computer technology) in service delivery, whereas the second section critically examines various public policy and legal areas that impact the daily lives of many persons having a disability.
