Summary
"Almost 50 million Americans have a disability and nearly half of these people are impaired in their ability to participate in routine activities of daily living such as dressing, toileting, cooking, housekeeping, and child care. Although there are many differences among the population of disabled people, recent improvements in medical care and technological advancements in adaptive and assistive aids are helping people with disabilities live fuller, more personally satisfying lives." "The Disabilities Sourcebook contains descriptions of major disabilities, including arthritis, blindness, deafness, quadriplegia, paraplegia, chronic pain, and others. It provides information about related assistive and adaptive aids. There is information about the Americans with Disabilities Act and other financial and legal issues faced by disabled people and those who care for them. A section on employment and workplace issues is provided. In addition, a glossary and chapters about various resources offer for further help and information."--BOOK JACKET
