This course is designed to introduce students to relevant physical, mental, emotional, and health conditions that might result in disability. The causes, interventions and effects of a disabling condition on the individual, family, and community are examined as well as changing values and practices. We explore the impact of poverty, deinstitutionalization, unemployment, and isolation on the lives of people labeled as disabled. This course focuses on specific disabling conditions prevalent in the field of human service.
