Description

This book helps in …building a bridge between the networks…The topics of aging and disabilities are multifaceted and therefore may be approached in many ways. The editors have chosen to focus on four systems and areas of common ground (aging, developmental disabilities, independent living movement, and rehabilitation), to investigate the emerging "intersection" of the two fields.
