This innovative new publication is a valuable resource for all those involved in the care and rehabilitation of people with disabilities. A unique feature of the book is its integration of the concepts and principles of rehabilitation with good clinical practice. The text encompasses a wealth of material from a broad range of perspectives including social and educational aspects, good management practice, audit evaluation research, and statistics. It deals with physical and intellectual disabilities and spans childhood disability and disablement and rehabilitation in later life and old age. This broad-based but scientifically informed book recognizes that breadth of expertise is needed to adequately assess the needs of people with disabilities and to establish appropriate strategies for their treatment.
