Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Employing a life-span approach, this text introduces some of the educational and social issues that confront people with moderate and severe disabilities on the path to community membership. Early chapters explore definitions of moderate and severe disabilities, review the history of service programs in the 20th century, and discuss the role of the family and society, ethical issues, and cultural and linguistic factors that influence the design of educational and community programs. Later chapters describe recommended practices and emerging service models for people at all age levels. McDonnell is affiliated with the University of Utah. Annotation c.
