Toward a Culture of Disability in the Aftermath of Deno and Dunn.
Hallahan, Daniel P.; Kauffman, James M.
Journal of Special Education, v27 n4 p496-508 Win 1994
Papers by Lloyd Dunn and Evelyn Deno are analyzed for their ideas about merging special and general education, labeling, and blaming students' failure to learn solely on teachers. Development of a culture of disability that uses the distinctive characteristics of persons with disabilities to develop a positive identity through congregation, teaching, and support is recommended.
