Disabilities

The Committee on Disabilities has recently finished a monograph, Caring for People with Physical Impairment: The Journey Back. This work focuses on the psychosocial care of individuals who have suffered catastrophic injuries. We are now looking at a short work on the mental care of the deaf.  In the near future, we would like to examine carefully the problem of deinstitutionalization of the physically and mentally disabled.
