Graduate project

The law and its implications in the education, employment and socialization of the handicapped

The purpose of this project is to present in broad perspective the conditions of the handicapped in relationship to society, the changes in those conditions in recent years (mainly through litigation efforts), and the challenges and possibilities of further changes in the future. The report synthesizes the presentations made by distinguished professionals from education, government, industry, and law, themselves advocates of the disabled, at a workshop on the law and the handicapped for members of the National Leadership Training Programs (areas of the deaf and deafblind) at California State University, Northridge, in July 1974.
