The Economics of Policies and Programs Affecting the Employment of People with Disabilities
Livermore, Gina A.; Stapleton, David C.; Nowak, Mark W.; Wittenburg, David C.; Eiseman, Elizabeth D.
Over the last several decades, there has been a movement toward the inclusion of people with disabilities in mainstream social institutions. The 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which supports the full participation of people with disabilities in society and mainstream institutions, illustrates the shift in attitudes toward people with disabilities. Rather than being perceived as having a social or medical problem, individuals with disabilities are increasingly viewed as people with challenges that can be solved if appropriate policies and supports are available for addressing them.
