The ADA Mandate for Social Change.
Wehman, Paul, Ed.
This book analyzes the effectiveness and implications for social change of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). It outlines several issues--legal implications, physical accessibility, transportation options, employment opportunities, and recreation--that stimulate community action for full inclusion. Part I, titled "Definitions and Expectations of the ADA," contains two papers: "Redefining Equality through the ADA" (Leonard S. Rubenstein and Bonnie Milstein) and "Quality of Life and Consumer Choice" (Wendy Parent). Part II, "Implications of the ADA," includes: "Employment Opportunities and Career Development" (Paul Wehman); "Supported Employment and Opportunities for Integration" (Paul Wehman); "Provisions of Reasonable Accommodation: What Do Employers Think?" (Craig Michaels and others); "Provisions of Assistive Technology: Bridging the Gap to Accessibility" (Shirley K. Chandler and others) and "The Challenge of Public Transportation and Mobility" (Paul Wehman). Part III, "The ADA as a Catalyst for Social Change," offers the following papers: "Family Empowerment" (H. Rutherford Turnbull, III, and others); "Education Reform" (Debra A. Neubert and Sherril Moon); "Public Accommodation and Housing Reforms" (John Kregel); and "Recreation and Leisure Lifestyle Changes" (Ronald Reynolds). The final section, titled "The ADA and Societal Acceptance," has two papers: "Increased Access to Community Resources" (Pamela S. Wolfe) and "Promises Made and Promises To Be Broken" (Steven J. Taylor and Robert Bogdan). A 20-item annotated bibliography, compiled by R. G. Rayfield, is also provided as well as references for individual papers. (JDD)
