Walking the Walk: Modeling Social Model and Universal Design in the Disabilities Office
Thornton, Melanie; Downs, Sharon
Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability, v23 n1 p72-78 2010
Making the shift from the medical model of disability to the social model requires postsecondary disabilities offices to carefully examine and revise policies and procedures to reflect this paradigm shift, which gives them the credibility to work toward such change on the campus level. The process followed by one university is covered in-depth, as well as outcomes and implications. (Contains 3 tables.)
