The policies and programs that serve children with disabilities are in constant flux. They change as a result of new legislation, court decisions, and changing societal standards. This has left a critical gap in the attempts to offer the best support and care for these children. This book attempts to fill that gap. The authors present an invaluable, comprehensive inventory of the major programs now available, including definitions of disability, eligibility conditions, and service and cash benefits -- all of which differ widely from program to program. From this inventory, the authors present a set of guiding principles for thinking about how to best allocate the resources we spend on these children and their families.
