Disability and the Family Life Cycle
The study of disability and its clinical treatment has become exponentially more complex as ever more interventions are developed that increase the life span. Consequently, developmental challenges facing people with disabilities and their families change throughout a lifetime.Unlike other texts, which concentrate only on the childhood years, Disability and the Family Life Cycle covers the entire life span within the family context, emphasizing maturational issues, with each chapter focusing on a different period of life. Disability and the Family Life Cycle is the only book to cover such topics as adult sons and daughters with disabilities, the developmental needs of the disabled elderly, and the needs of spouses and siblings.
