"Like the rest of the 'Disability: Key Issues and Future Directions' series, 'Disability Through The Life Course' is especially recommended for undergraduate and vocational reference shelves in the libraries of colleges that seek to train students for careers in the field."
"This book offers a balance of history, theory research, and application for specialists interested in findings and implications of research and practice for others whose current or future work involves the care of and/or study of those with disabilities, as well as for people with disabilities.... Disability Through the Life Course is an excellent resource for university professors and students of any of the many human services disciplines, including adapted physical activity professionals, and a valuable addition to a university library collection."
"This particular volume focuses on disability across the life span, addressing the needs and concerns of people at various stages of life, from prenatal development to old age. Heller and Harris, the main authors, address cultural environmental, political, and socioeconomic aspects of life development. This volume will be a valuable resource for those beginning their research or simply exploring the many facets of this important social issue. Summing Up: Recommended."
