Describes various cultural responses to disability, looking at families and individuals with Down syndrome from a cross-cultural perspective. (2 x Copies)
Cultural influences impact on all our lives and this is no less true for people with Down syndrome. This publication describes various cultural responses to disability, looking at families and individuals with Down syndrome from a cross-cultural perspective and how best they can be supported, and examining the form and functions of service systems that are culturally sensitive and appropriate.
NB: The library resources are available for ADSA library members to borrow. Unfortunately we do not sell direct to the general public.
