The Social Psychology of Childhood Disability (Paperback): David Thomas The Social Psychology of Childhood Disability (Paperback)
David Thomas
R1,044 Discovery Miles 10 440 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

'Some years ago I read the phrase "the spontaneous revulsion to the deformed". The phrase seemed to be both potent and provocative: Was there a spontaneous revulsion to disabilities in children or did such conditions evoke a more compassionate response?' Originally published in 1978, the problems of the disabled were no longer confined to the medical and educational professionals, but had become the concern of the community as a whole. Using terminology very much of the time, the author shows how attitudes towards different kinds of disability had developed at the time; they varied both regionally and by social class, sometimes calling into question the accepted 'facts' about the distribution of a particular condition. Most importantly, the author examines these attitudes together with many other social and psychological factors in relation to their impact on the social behaviour and developing self-image of the disabled child. It becomes clear that the dangers of categorization and the difficulties in overcoming stigma have a profound influence on the education and socialization of disabled children. This book will be of historical interest to students and teachers of psychology, education, social work and rehabilitation; and it will provide insight for parents and all those concerned with the care and development of the disabled child about how far we have come.

Deaf Children and Their Families (Paperback): Sarah Beazley, Michele C. Moore Deaf Children and Their Families (Paperback)
Sarah Beazley, Michele C. Moore
R881 Discovery Miles 8 810 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This work aims to take disablement out of the experience of children and their families. It focuses on deaf children and uses a valuable combination of what families say and discussions of topical issues about how disabling issues can be avoided.

Parents and Young Mentally Handicapped Children - A Review of Research Issues (Paperback): Helen McConachie Parents and Young Mentally Handicapped Children - A Review of Research Issues (Paperback)
Helen McConachie
R811 Discovery Miles 8 110 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

First published in 1986, this book reviews research on the role parents play in fostering the early development of children with mental handicaps. Professionals and parents must work together to give such children the chance of living as ordinary lives as possible and here, the author develops a broadly-based conceptual framework for the involvement of parents as teachers of their young handicapped children. McConachie identifies characteristics of parents which seem of particular relevance to the design and success of intervention programmes. Although written in the 1980s, this book discusses topics that are still important today.

Childhood Disability and Family Systems (Paperback): Michael Ferrari, Marvin B Sussman Childhood Disability and Family Systems (Paperback)
Michael Ferrari, Marvin B Sussman
R811 Discovery Miles 8 110 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

First published in 1987, this book focuses on childhood disability within the family. It examines the very nature of disability itself, as well as many of the fundamental elements of families. The book was written at a time when the meaning level of disability and its effect on family and society were rapidly changing and people with disabilities were starting to benefit from opportunities to compensate for whatever disabilities they may have had. Modern technology and an affluent society afforded advantages to support many of its disabled members. Contributors examine the contemporary context of disability, the cost of disability to families, ethical, philosophical and social issues underlying the treatment and rehabilitation of children with severe disabilities, and the role of professionals, amongst other topics. This book will be of interest to those involved in teaching, research and direct care with families who have children with disabilities. Although written in the late 80s, the work discusses subjects that are still vital today.

Diana M. Millard
R798 Discovery Miles 7 980 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

First published in 1984, this book focuses on the support and reassurance needed by parents of children with handicaps. It provides a practical guide in relation to daily care and is equally as relevant to professionals, therapists, teachers, doctors and psychologists who must advise parents. Written by an Occupational Therapist, the book highlights the need to make such children as independent as possible and gives advice on care of a special baby, modifications to the home environment, the needs of a child with a physical handicap, problems of educational handicap, and the place of a child in the family and community.

The Sociology of Disability and Inclusive Education - A Tribute to Len Barton (Paperback): Madeleine Arnot The Sociology of Disability and Inclusive Education - A Tribute to Len Barton (Paperback)
Madeleine Arnot
R1,044 Discovery Miles 10 440 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Len Barton's intellectual and practical contribution to the sociology of disability and education is highly significant and widely known. The leading scholars in this collection, including his long term collaborators, offer both a celebration and a reassessment of this contribution, addressing the challenge that the social model of disability has presented to dominant medicalised concepts, categories and practices, and their power to define the identity and the lives of others. At the same time the authors build upon some of the key themes that are woven through Len Barton's work, such as his call for a 'politics of hope'. This collection explores a wide range of topics, including: difference as a field of political struggle the relationship of disability studies, disabled people and their struggle for inclusion radical activism: organic intellectuals and the disability movement discrimination, exclusion and effective change inclusive education the 'politics of hope', resilience and transformative actions universal pedagogy, human rights and citizenship debates. The Sociology of Disability and Inclusive Education highlights Len Barton's humane vision of academic work, of the nature of an inclusive and non-discriminatory society, of the role of an education system which addresses the rights, and potential of all participants. It indicates how such a society could be achieved through the principles of social inclusion, human rights, equity and social justice. This book was originally published as a special issue of the British Journal of Sociology of Education.

Disability in Eighteenth-Century England - Imagining Physical Impairment (Paperback): David M Turner Disability in Eighteenth-Century England - Imagining Physical Impairment (Paperback)
David M Turner
R1,044 Discovery Miles 10 440 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This is the first book-length study of physical disability in eighteenth-century England. It assesses the ways in which meanings of physical difference were formed within different cultural contexts, and examines how disabled men and women used, appropriated, or rejected these representations in making sense of their own experiences. In the process, it asks a series of related questions: what constituted 'disability' in eighteenth-century culture and society? How was impairment perceived? How did people with disabilities see themselves and relate to others? What do their stories tell us about the social and cultural contexts of disability, and in what ways were these narratives and experiences shaped by class and gender? In order to answer these questions, the book explores the languages of disability, the relationship between religious and medical discourses of disability, and analyzes depictions of people with disabilities in popular culture, art, and the media. It also uncovers the 'hidden histories' of disabled men and women themselves drawing on elite letters and autobiographies, Poor Law documents and criminal court records.

Integration of Handicapped Children in Society (Paperback): James Loring, Graham Burn Integration of Handicapped Children in Society (Paperback)
James Loring, Graham Burn
R808 Discovery Miles 8 080 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

First published in 1975, this book looks at the place of children with handicaps in society, at that time. It argues that in the thirty years previous, a great deal of progress was made in the field of rehabilitation but that the separation between handicapped people and the community was still a challenge. A strong range of contributors discuss approaches to the problem focusing on education, employment, and daily life. Topics covered include the social aspects of integration, through the problems of the multiple-handicapped child, to a survey of disabled students at universities and polytechnics in Great Britain.

Children's Understanding of Disability (Paperback): Ann Lewis Children's Understanding of Disability (Paperback)
Ann Lewis
R1,556 Discovery Miles 15 560 Ships in 12 - 17 working days


Children's Understanding of Disability is a valuable addition to the debate surrounding the integration of children with special needs into ordinary schools. Taking the viewpoint of the children themselves, it explores how pupils with severe learning difficulties and their non-disabled classmates interact.
Ann Lewis examines what happens when non-disabled children and pupils with severe learning difficulties work together regularly over the course of a year. She also includes the views of children working in segregated special education. From her findings, she draws implications for developing an inclusive ethos in schools and other communities.

Poverty Reduction of the Disabled - Livelihood of persons with disabilities in the Philippines (Paperback): Soya Mori, Celia M.... Poverty Reduction of the Disabled - Livelihood of persons with disabilities in the Philippines (Paperback)
Soya Mori, Celia M. Reyes, Tatsufumi Yamagata
R1,044 Discovery Miles 10 440 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

A third of poor people are disabled in the developing world. How much do we know about their livelihood with hard data? Are they entirely powerless and dependent on family members? How do they earn income? These questions have become more important than ever, now that persons with disabilities (PWDs) in developing countries have awakened to rights and entitlements and that the international community started considering the incorporation of disability into the context of poverty reduction. This book highlights opportunities and challenges faced by PWDs in the developing countries. This book also illustrates the analyses with a case study which was conducted in the Philippines and this case study has made a good progress in legislation for PWDs. A field survey was jointly conducted by the Institute of Developing Economies, Japan, and the Philippine Institute for Development Studies in Metro Manila, the capital city of the Philippines, in 2008. Around 400 PWDs were interviewed, and the data was investigated with econometrics. The book highlights a remarkable disparity in earnings and education among PWDs. The book also examines the positive role of organizations such as Disabled People's Organizations and how empowerment of PWDs is made through dissemination of useful information such as programs given by the central and local governments. The book concludes that all measures, i.e. education, training, DPOs and institutional preferences, must be mobilized harmoniously to boost the livelihood of PWDs sinking in the bottom stratum in income.

Preventing Mental Illness in Practice (Paperback, 1st Paperback Ed): Jennifer Newton Preventing Mental Illness in Practice (Paperback, 1st Paperback Ed)
Jennifer Newton
R939 Discovery Miles 9 390 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Increasingly, planners and practitioners are considering setting up a greater level of preventive mental health care at a local level. "Preventing Mental Illness in Practice" aims to inform their decisions by describing characteristics of "good practice", and identifying a number of promising approaches which are described in some detail. The review represents the second stage of a prevention research project set up by MIND (National Association for Mental Health). The criteria used for identifying good practice are that the project: is targetted towards people known to be at high resk of mental illness; makes maximum use of existing natural, voluntary of community support networks; and supports people in a way that enhances their capacity to control their own life circumstances. The projects selected cover the life stages - from pregnancy and early childhood to old age. They are discussed in the context of relevant research findings which give the rationale for the approach. Ten different projects or services are described: what is provided, how the target group is engaged, the resources required, management problems, and evidence of effectiveness.

Services for People with Learning Disabilities (Hardcover, 2nd New edition): Nigel Malin Services for People with Learning Disabilities (Hardcover, 2nd New edition)
Nigel Malin
R4,065 Discovery Miles 40 650 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This book examines new developments in provisions for people with learning disabilities. It establishes the current network of services as a base and reduces aspects of the NHS, Community Care Act (1990) and Disabled Persons Act (1986) to terminology accessible to professionals and others engaged in this area. Building on "Services for the Mentally Handicapped in Britain" (Malin, Race and Jones, 1980), it includes additional chapters such as advocacy/empowerment and recreation and leisure. Other parts of the book consider in more detail concepts engendered in the new legislation: care-management and assessment, quality and inspection, and inter-agency planning. The book aims to provide a broad review of material based on research and local developments in deinstitutionalization and community care, residential, day care, voluntary and educational services. It should be of interest to students and professional staff in psychology, teaching, medicine, nursing, social work and the voluntary sector concerned with people with learning disabilities.

Disability, Space, Architecture: A Reader (Hardcover): Jos Boys Disability, Space, Architecture: A Reader (Hardcover)
Jos Boys
R3,838 Discovery Miles 38 380 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Disability, Space, Architecture: A Reader takes a groundbreaking approach to exploring the interconnections between disability, architecture and cities. The contributions come from architecture, geography, anthropology, health studies, English language and literature, rhetoric and composition, art history, disability studies and disability arts and cover personal, theoretical and innovative ideas and work. Richer approaches to disability - beyond regulation and design guidance - remain fragmented and difficult to find for architectural and built environment students, educators and professionals. By bringing together in one place some seminal texts and projects, as well as newly commissioned writings, readers can engage with disability in unexpected and exciting ways that can vibrantly inform their understandings of architecture and urban design. Most crucially, Disability, Space, Architecture: A Reader opens up not just disability but also ability - dis/ability - as a means of refusing the normalisation of only particular kinds of bodies in the design of built space. It reveals how our everyday social attitudes and practices about people, objects and spaces can be better understood through the lens of disability, and it suggests how thinking differently about dis/ability can enable innovative and new kinds of critical and creative architectural and urban design education and practice.

Disability, Society and Assistive Technology (Hardcover): Bodil Ravneberg, Sylvia Soederstroem Disability, Society and Assistive Technology (Hardcover)
Bodil Ravneberg, Sylvia Soederstroem
R3,050 Discovery Miles 30 500 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The provision of assistive technology is an important individual and collective service of the welfare state. The state plays a significant role towards linking users and products, and the matching of devices and users is both a science and an art. However, many people feel it is stigmatising to use individually designed assistive technologies as they often, in a subtle way, convey discriminating barriers in society. The major challenges of assistive technology are thus to reduce social exclusion and marginalisation and, importantly, to reduce individual risks and societal costs related to non-use due to deficiencies in usability, aesthetics and design of the technologies. This groundbreaking book discusses the relationships among society, disability and technology by using different empirical examples (e.g., school, everyday life) to show why the combination of disability studies and STS-studies (science, technology and society) is a fruitful approach to understanding and meeting these challenges. The book explores the significance of the technologies for users, society and the field; identifies challenges to designing, adopting and using assistive technologies; and points at theoretical challenges in research as well as professional challenges in assistive technology service provision. The book also scrutinises the role of assistive technology devices, as well as the organisational structure of the assistive technology market, in relation to disabled people's lives. This book will be valuable reading for students, academics, teachers and social educators interested in Disability Studies, STS Studies, Product Design, Sociology, Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy, as well as engineers working in the field of assistive technology.

Reframing Disability? - Media, (Dis)Empowerment, and Voice in the 2012 Paralympics (Paperback): Daniel Jackson, Caroline E. M.... Reframing Disability? - Media, (Dis)Empowerment, and Voice in the 2012 Paralympics (Paperback)
Daniel Jackson, Caroline E. M. Hodges, Mike Molesworth, Richard Scullion
R1,190 Discovery Miles 11 900 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The London 2012 Paralympic Games - the biggest, most accessible and best-attended games in the Paralympics' 64-year history - came with an explicit aim to "transform the perception of disabled people in society," and use sport to contribute to "a better world for all people with a disability." This social agenda offered the potential to re-frame disability; to symbolically challenge "ableist" ideology and to offer a reinvention of the (dis)abled body and a redefinition of the possible. This edited collection investigates what has and is happening in relation to these ambitions. The book is structured around three key questions: 1. What were the predominant mediated narratives surrounding the Paralympics, and what are the associated meanings attached to them? 2. How were the Paralympics experienced by media audiences (both disabled and non-disabled)? 3. To what extent did the 2012 Paralympics inspire social change? Each section of this book is interspersed with authentic "voices" from outside academia: broadcasters, athletes and disabled schoolchildren.

Fostering Accessible Technology through Regulation (Hardcover): Delia Ferri, G Anthony Giannoumis Fostering Accessible Technology through Regulation (Hardcover)
Delia Ferri, G Anthony Giannoumis
R3,062 Discovery Miles 30 620 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Technology has attracted an increasing level of attention within studies of disability and disability rights. Many researchers and advocates have maintained skepticism towards technology out of the fear that technology becomes another way to 'fix' impairments. These skeptical views, however, contrast with a more positive approach towards the role that technology can play in eliminating barriers to social participation. Legal scholarship has started to focus on accessibility and accessible technology and in conjunction with the recently adopted United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities has put a great emphasis on accessibility, highlighting the role that accessible technology plays in the promotion and protection of the rights of people with disabilities. Against this background, this book gathers together different contributions that focus on enhancing the production, marketing and use of accessible technology. Building upon previous academic studies and in light of the UNCRPD, accessible technology is considered a tool to increase autonomy and participation. Overall, this book attempts to show, through a multifaceted and inter-disciplinary analysis, that different regulatory approaches might enhance accessible technology and its availability. This title was previously published as a special issue of the International Review of Law, Computers & Technology.

The Experience of Hearing Loss - Journey Through Aural Rehabilitation (Hardcover): Vinaya Manchaiah, Berth Danermark The Experience of Hearing Loss - Journey Through Aural Rehabilitation (Hardcover)
Vinaya Manchaiah, Berth Danermark
R3,058 Discovery Miles 30 580 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Hearing loss is a common chronic condition which is often poorly recognized but can have multiple negative impacts, not just on the lives of those directly affected, but also those living with them. People with impaired hearing may begin a long and uncertain journey involving a number of key stages, from emerging awareness and help-seeking, to diagnosis, adjustment, and self-evaluation. Based on a model of person-centered audiological rehabilitation, this book explains why it is important to understand both patients' own experiences, and those of their communication partners, over time. It focuses particularly on the human dynamics of hearing loss, exploring the broader consequences of hearing loss for the individual, family members, and wider society. In particular the book: gives insight into the patients' and their communication partners' experiences and perspectives through clear and telling first-hand narrative accounts; examines how people understand their own hearing loss, reflect on their experiences with hearing aids - both positive and negative - and evaluate treatment options; considers the changes needed to conversations in order to include all communication partners, whether with impaired hearing or not; and discusses consequences of hearing loss using the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF). With its explicit aim to increase awareness of the need to include the patient and close relatives in the process of rehabilitation, this new text makes an important contribution to further improve evidence-based practice in the field of audiological rehabilitation. An ideal text for audiology, ENT, and nursing students of all levels.

Human Rights and Disability - Interdisciplinary Perspectives (Hardcover): John-Stewart Gordon, Johann-Christian Poder, Holger... Human Rights and Disability - Interdisciplinary Perspectives (Hardcover)
John-Stewart Gordon, Johann-Christian Poder, Holger Burckhart
R3,186 Discovery Miles 31 860 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The formerly established medically-based idea of disability, with its charity-based approach to treatment and services, is being replaced by a human rights-based approach in which people with impairments are no longer considered medical problems, totally dependent on the beneficence of non-impaired people in society, but have fundamental rights to support, inclusion, and participation. This interdisciplinary book examines the diverse concerns that people with impairments face in the context of human rights, provides insights into new developments on important issues relating human rights to disability, and features new approaches and solutions to vital problems in the current debate.

Feminist Perspectives on Disability provides a unique introduction to the key debates in relation to both feminism and disability. The author considers contemporary similarities, differences and contentious areas and how concepts drawn from postmodern feminism can be usefully applied to the disability arena. The book explores many important aspects of the field, including: biological debates; issues of power, knowledge, equality, difference, subjectivity and the body; interface of public and private/care and community; medical and social barriers; politics, citizenship and identity. Feminist Perspectives on Disability will be compulsory reading for students of all levels in Women's Studies, Gender Relations, Social Policy, Social Work/Social Care and social Science.

Outrevelt
R987 Discovery Miles 9 870 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

In the past the therapy professions concentrated on developing their practice base while social scientists examined the relationships between the practioners and the field of medicine. Neither fully recognized the importance of organisation and management in making the most of scarce and valuable resources. This book calls for a more positive response to the new 'public welfare markets' which are emerging in the UK and elsewhere. Effective organisation and management are essential if the therapy professionals are to secure their futures and ensure effective service delivery.

Sport and the Female Disabled Body (Hardcover): Elisabet Apelmo Sport and the Female Disabled Body (Hardcover)
Elisabet Apelmo
R3,177 Discovery Miles 31 770 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This path-breaking book analyses the experiences of young sporting women with physical impairments. Taking phenomenology as a point of departure, Elisabet Apelmo explores how the young women handle living with a body which, on the one hand, is viewed as deviant - the disabled body - and on the other hand is viewed as accomplished - the sporting body. A polarization is apparent between the weak, which is manifested through the expression of belonging as "we", and the strong individual. The subject position as strong, positive and capable - as a reaction towards the weak, the negative - is one of the few positions that are available to them. Furthermore, the book demonstrates the strategies of resistance the young women develop against the marginalisation, stereotyping and othering they experience in their everyday lives. Finally, the author discusses the paradox of gender. Disabled bodies are often seen as non-gendered, however, these young women's experiences are structured by both the gender regimes within sports and the larger gender order of the society.

R3,183 Discovery Miles 31 830 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

If proposals for the social integration of people with mental illness are to be taken seriously, then a reshaping of society's attitudes is essential. This volume traces the experiences of a group of people, with a history of schizophrenic illness, across a number of themes which include housing, poverty, stigma, medication, psychiatric services in the community and the meaning of madness. The text aims to address in detail the contemporary debate about the community care of people who are mentally ill, and analyze the impact of current policies on the people who are their direct recipients.

Organizing the Blind - The case of ONCE in Spain (Hardcover): Roberto Garvia Organizing the Blind - The case of ONCE in Spain (Hardcover)
Roberto Garvia
R3,176 Discovery Miles 31 760 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This book is a case study which narrates the history of the National Organization of the Spanish Blind (ONCE), established in 1937 during the Spanish Civil War. Contrary to other affluent countries where most blind people live on welfare benefits, the Spanish blind enjoy full employment. Furthermore, the average income of the Spanish blind is higher than that of the sighted. Why is this so? Why the blind, and not the deaf mute, or any other group of disabled people? This book shows that ONCE answers these questions. The book explains ONCE'S origins, the shifting strategies that the organization has pursued to adapt to an ever-changing environment, its original goals and the way they have mutated and been interpreted, its conflicting relationship with an authoritarian regime, its struggle to find its place in a democratic regime, and its relations with other groups of disabled people. A historical narrative, the book lies at the intersection between disability and organization studies, history and sociology. It will be of interest to all scholars of disability studies, the sociology of work, the history of medicine and contemporary Spanish history.

Child Pain, Migraine, and Invisible Disability (Hardcover): Susan Honeyman Child Pain, Migraine, and Invisible Disability (Hardcover)
Susan Honeyman
R3,306 Discovery Miles 33 060 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

In the twenty-first century there is increasing global recognition of pain relief as a basic human right. However, as Susan Honeyman argues in this new take on child pain and invisible disability, such a belief has historically been driven by adult, ideological needs, whereas the needs of children in pain have traditionally been marginalised or overlooked in comparison. Examining migraines in children and the socially disabling effects that chronic pain can have, this book uses medical, political and cultural discourse to convey a sense of invisible disability in children with migraine and its subsequent oppression within educational and medical policy. The book is supported by authentic migraineurs' experiences and first-hand interviews as well as testimonials from a range of historical, literary, and medical sources never combined in a child-centred context before. Representations of child pain and lifespan migraine within literature, art and popular culture are also pulled together in order to provide an interdisciplinary guide to those wanting to understand migraine in children and the identity politics of disability more fully. Child Pain, Migraine, and Invisible Disability will appeal to scholars in childhood studies, children's rights, literary and visual culture, disability studies and medical humanities. It will also be of interest to anyone who has suffered from migraines or has cared for children affected by chronic pain.
