Disabilities Studies

Definition of Disability Studies

One in seven people experience disability in their lifetime, but despite the Americans with Disabilities Act, many Americans are still uncomfortable with the concept of disability.  Disability Studies is a multidisciplinary subject with a focus both on the individual’s capabilities and society’s conceptions of people with disabilities. As a course of study Disability Studies combines clinical approaches to the individual’s needs and critical study of society’s reactions.
