Reaching Out/Reaching In/Reaching Across

Book

Historically, people with disability have been segregated from the valued core of society both physically and in terms of their place in society: They are considered to be 'in place' when that place is separate from the mainstream of society. In her thesis, Ellis makes it clear that people with disability are disabled first and foremost by society. Ellis focuses on the lives of four people with disability and their families who have crossed the boundaries and now live and move in the mainstream of society. She proposes that these boundaries and barriers can only be breached by developing social relationships which include rather than segregate people with disability and illustrates this with excerpts from inteviews with the families involved.
