About this book

Introduction

Habilitation Planning for Adults With Disabilities presents a comprehensive approach to habilitation planning and service delivery for adults with disabilities. This book investigates the increased demands and expectations by adults with disabilities regarding personalized service and quality of life, including independence, productivity, and community integration, and discusses historical and current treatment and trends. This book is presented in five main sections: definitions and background material; lifestyles and living, work, and recreational environments; habilitation strategies; personal growth and quality of life for the affected adult; and the present and future trends in habilitation planning. Rehabilitation personnel in the areas of administration, assessment/training, case management, or evolution; applied psychologists; and professionals and students in special education, rehabilitation counseling, human service or health adminstration will be interested in this volume.
