Disability is not Measles; New Research Paradigms in Disability

Book

What does most research in the field of disability look like? It looks a great deal like the research into measles. The goal is prevention. Cures are sought. However, disability is not a medical condition that needs to be eliminated from the population. It is a social status and the research agenda must take into account the political implications attached to that status. A new research framework seeks to prevent the conditions that make the disability a liability in social and economic participation. It identifies ways to increase individual control over social well being, rather than defining social well being as the absence of disability....(This book) presents an innovative and provocative framework for disability research based on these principles....it examines the application of this framework across research areas.
