First published in 1994. The chapters that make up this book are not primarily about disability or visual impairment. What they do address is the right of all people to have further education and training made available in ways that meet their needs regardless of gender, race, age and ability. This book examines their entitlement to this education and some of the ways in which it can be made accessible. The issues raised are relevant to all people entering further education and training.
