Issues in International Rehabilitation.
Nathanson, Jeanne H., Ed.
OSERS News in Print, v4 n2 Fall 1991
Eight articles address issues and programs in international rehabilitation. The issue is introduced by a message from the Assistant Secretary of the United States Department of Education for the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitation Services, Robert R. Davila. Next, "A History of International Rehabilitation" (Nora Ellen Groce) reports on a recently completed history. Martha Lentz Walker, in "Rehabilitation Service Delivery to Individuals with Disabilities: A Question of Cultural Competence," stresses the necessity for professionals to see beyond the boundaries of their own cultural interpretations. "Learning and Sharing Around the World" (H. Rutherford Turnbull et al.) looks at family services in other countries and in the United States. Paul R. Ackerman then reports on a rehabilitation project in India conducted by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research. Next, "The United Nations and People with Disabilities", by Jeanne H. Nathanson, reviews programs supported by that agency. Barbara Duncan examines "The Role of Rehabilitation International in the United Nations Decade of Disabled Persons." Finally, the International Exchange of Experts and Information in Rehabilitation is described in "An International Project that Provides Opportunities to Learn about Policies, Programs, and Practices in Other Countries" by Diane E. Woods. (DB)
