Summary
  • Beginning with infancy and the diagnosis of congenital or early onset disabilities, the book identifies traditional developmental life stages and then provides specific information for four different disabilities: Down syndrome, visual impairment, cerebral palsy, and spina bifida. In addition, spinal cord injury is added at the young adult stage of development. The reader can thus determine expected age-appropriate activities and accomplishments as well as some adapted expectations. In keeping with a social work emphasis on strengths, the book is based on a social, rather than medical, model of disability
  • The information in this book allows the social worker to create treatment plans, coordinate with other professionals, and competently assist the person with the disability and his or her family
  • Understanding Disability details expected developmental stages for those without disabilities as well as the impact of disability at each of these periods. This is a much needed reference for working with a person with a disability, or with a family member or other interested party
