Description - Learning Disability by David Race
The study of learning disability features rarely in university courses. To a large extent this reflects the low value attributed by our society and its human services to people with learning difficulties. This unusual book, based on one of those rare courses, includes contributions from academic specialists, students and people with learning difficulties, all of whom have participated in the course. This 'social approach' challenges the very ideas of what should be taught about the subject of disability and who should teach it. In essence, the book looks at how people's lives are affected by human services; it covers specific policy and service issues, different aspects of working with people and the key debates. The unique insights gained from the combination of academic knowledge and real-life experience are related throughout to the government's strategy. Learning Disability provides a topical and thought-provoking text for anyone involved with learning disability - student, teacher, professional or policy maker.
