Author: King, G., Cathers, T.
Type: Journal Article
Year: 1996


This Keeping Current article provides information about life today for adolescents with disabilities. It discusses how they fare in the external, interpersonal, and personal spheres of life and what they want in life. Our thorough review of the literature raises these key implications for service delivery for this group: a whole person orientation to services is essential; we can learn a great deal by listening to adolescents themselves; adolescents with disabilities have the same desires and aspirations as other adolescents;eliminating barriers in the physical, social, and institutional environments is essential.
