Almost 50 million Americans have a disability, and nearly half of these people are impaired in their ability to participate in routine activities of daily living. Although there are many differences among the population of disabled people, recent improvements in medical care and technological advancements in adaptive and assistive aids are helping people with disabilities live fuller, more personally satisfying lives.

Disabilities Sourcebook contains descriptions of major disabilities, their causes, and people who are disabled. It provides information about assistive and adaptive aids and sports and recreation equipment that can improve life for disabled individuals. Also included is information about the Americans with Disabilities Act, employment and workplace issues, and other financial and legal issues. In addition, the book contains a glossary and lists of resources for further help and information.
