A BOOK THAT SOCIAL WORK EDUCATORS NEED to more completely understand the plight of persons with disabilities. The major strength of this book is in that it offers social work educators various types of information about persons with disabilities that range from discussions of ADA and IDEA to case studies of individuals with disabilities. . . . Each chapter of this book in its own way provides social work educators and students with insight into the issues associated with disability, and this insight is needed. -- Martha Markward, Associate Professor, and Co-Editor of Reassessing Social Work Practice with Children
