It is designed to help students in Disability Law courses synthesize and apply the materials they are learning. It is also designed to function as a compact treatise for practicing lawyers and others looking for an analysis of the Fourteenth Amendment, the Americans with Disabilities Act, section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, the Fair Housing Act Amendments, and other laws, as they relate to controversial issues of disability rights. The book discusses the leading cases on each of the major topics of disability law, and suggests ways of thinking about unresolved questions and debates over legal policy. Understanding Disability Law includes detailed coverage of: • Constitutional law bearing on disability discrimination; • The controversy over who is a person with a disability for purposes of federal statutes; • Employment discrimination rights and remedies; • Educational discrimination, including special education law and higher education for students with disabilities; • Discrimination in public accommodations; • Discrimination by federal, state, and local governments; and • Other topics, including disability discrimination related to housing, transportation, and telecommunications.

It then provides specific information for four different disabilities: Down's syndrome, visual impairment, cerebral palsy and spina bifida. Spinal cord injury at the young adult stage of development is also included. With this knowledge, the reader can determine expected age-appropriate activities and accomplishments as well as some adapted expectations. In keeping with a social work emphasis on strengths, the book is based on a social, rather than medical, model of disability. The information

When the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 was first signed into law, there was immediate concerns. Critics were worried that the law was overly accommodating, and would allow people with minor disabilities to take advantages of the act unjustly. The book examines U.S. national disability policy within several contexts: research and statistics, efficacy of the law, education, health care, long term services and supports, youth, employment, welfare, transportation, housing, technology, international issues and homeland security. This wide range of issues gives critics and advocates of the nation's disability policy the tools to improve understanding of how the policy has affected the country.

"Ending Disability Discrimination" defines disability as a social construction, not as an immutable physical limitation, and gives social work students and practitioners a model that can be used to transform how people with disabilities are treated. Highlights: Uses an innovative model for understanding disability that draws upon a concept familiar to social work students: discrimination (Chapter 5). Presents disability-related impairment as a consequence of discrimination, making the target system the social environment rather than the person with the disability; a viewpoint that shows commitment to social justice and draws upon the systems perspective used for understanding other minority groups. Provides a single source through which to explore the shifting history of scholarly thinking about disability issues by including chapters from respected disability scholars that chronicle and analyze the evolution of the conceptualization of disability (Chapters 1, 2, and 4).
