Beginning with disability : a primer by Lennard J Davis( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While there are many introductions to disability and disability studies, most presume an advanced academic knowledge of a range of subjects. Beginning with Disability is the first introductory primer for disability studies aimed at first- and second-year students in two- and four-year colleges. This volume of essays across disciplines - including education, sociology, communications, psychology, social sciences, and humanities - features accessible, readable, relatively short chapters that do not require specialized knowledge. Lennard Davis, along with a team of consulting editors, has compiled a number of blogs, vlogs, and other videos to make the materials more relatable and vivid to students. "Subject to Debate" boxes spotlight short pro and con pieces on controversial subjects that can be debated in class or act as prompts for assignments. -- from back cover
Exploring How Knowledge Translation Can Improve Sustainability of Community-based Health Initiatives for People with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Community-based health initiatives (CBHI) play an important role in maintaining the health, function and participation of people with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD) living in the community. However, implementation and long-term sustainability of CBHI is challenging. The Promoting Action on Research Implementation in Health Services(PARiHS) is a knowledge translation (KT) framework that is particularly relevant to intellectual/developmental disabilities research as it identifies the barriers and facilitators of implementation and action plans. This framework provides a foundation for understanding how KT can be used to aid the implementation and sustainability of CBHI for people with intellectual/developmental disabilities. The following study explores how KT - specifically the PARiHS framework - can be used to help sustain CBHI for people with intellectual/developmental disabilities
