"You Have To Learn Who Comes with the Disability": Students' Reflections on Service Learning Experiences with Peers Labeled with Disabilities.
Smith, Valerie M.
Research and Practice for Persons with Severe Disabilities, v28 n2 p79-90 Sum 2003
This article presents knowledge about disability issues that seven undergraduate students constructed through participation in a semester-long service learning class. In-depth interviews and examination of reflective journals revealed that students used their experiences to question the nature of relationships with people with disabilities, the meaning and uses of disability labels, and the place of people with disabilities in society.
