It's About Time Physical Disabilities Came Out in the Open: Part I. Amputation, Monoplegia, Hemiplegia, Triplegia, Quadruplegia, Paraplegia.
Davis, Kay
After a definition of the term, mobility impairments, and a discussion of the causes and problems associated with amputation, this document covers, under the major section, Paralysis, six handicapping conditions in terms of how each may affect a student's ability to be successful in both a vocational program and a job. Topics under this section cover how many Americans are paralyzed to some degree; what causes paralysis; the different types of paralysis (monoplegia, hemiplegia, triplegia, quadruplegia, tetraplegia, paraplegia); paralysis caused by injury to the spinal cord; employment possibilities of paralyzed individuals; architectural barriers to education and employment; new standards for physical facilities; suggestions for classroom teachers; and the major barrier to educational and employment opportunities. Additional information covers national and state organizations, a resource list for mechanical modifications, travel information for the physically handicapped person, and a resource list for physical facility modifications of an educational institution. A bibliography is appended. (HD)
