Disability Through the Life Course

Disability Through the Life Course (2011) Heller, T. & Parker Harris, S.: SAGE Publications, Thousand Oaks, CA.

Disability Through the Life Course explores topics central to the lives of people with disabilities across the life course. In this book, the life course approach assumes that, beginning prenatally, events occurring early in life affect later periods in one's life. It recognizes that development does not necessarily proceed in neat stages and that impairments interact with social determinants (e.g., culture and socioeconomic status) and environmental aspects (e.g., services and supports) across the life course, resulting in differing outcomes for people.
