Meyers, Allan R.
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v105 n5 p342-51 Sep 2000
Review of the literature on happiness, or felicitude, in people with physical disabilities considers data showing that levels of happiness may be high despite severe levels of impairment. It concludes that for both physical and intellectual disabilities, the task is to overcome stereotypes and measure health-related quality of life in meaningful, accessible, and acceptable terms.
