Derer, Kristine Renee; D'Alonzo, Bruno J.
Preventing School Failure, v44 n2 p73-80 Win 2000

Elements of empowerment are juxtaposed with the following metaphors for practice: building a definition of disability, following the parent's lead, creating a community of helpers, and expanding perspectives.
