The SAGE Reference Series on Disability, from Gary L Albrecht - editor of Handbook of Disability Studies (2003) and Encyclopedia of Disability (2005) - is a cross-disciplinary and issues-based series which incorporates links from varied fields making up disability studies. Including eight volumes, each examines topics central to the lives of individuals with disabilities and their families. With a balance of history, theory, research, and application, specialists set out the findings and implications of research and practice for others whose current or future work involves the care and/or study of those with disabilities, as well as for the disabled themselves. The presentational style (concise and engaging) emphasizes accessibility. Taken individually, each volume sets out the fundamentals of the topic it addresses, accompanied by compiled data and statistics, recommended further readings, a guide to organizations and associations, and other annotated resources, thus providing the ideal introductory platform and gateway for further study. Taken together, the series represents both a survey of major disability issues and a guide to new directions and trends and contemporary resources in the field as a whole. The series includes the following volumes: - Ethics, Law and Policy - Arts and Humanities - Employment and Work - Education - Disability Through the Life Course - Health and Medicine - Assistive Technology and Science - Rehabilitation Interventions

It considers the major theories of human development as they relate to people with and without disabilities, and career theories with a focus on the concept of choice. The book addresses specific developmental stages including a description of developmental tasks, risks, disability applications, specific disabilities common to a particular stage, and cultural and ethical issues, all supported by case examples. Key Features: Fulfills the required CORE mandated course on human growth and development and the disability experience Addresses disability across the lifespan in relation to developmental stages Authored by highly a respected expert in disability studies
