Disabled individuals face numerous limiting prejudices and challenges in mainstream American Society. Fortunately, current disability legislation has improved, mandating: (1)

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.
