The course will examine the social implications of disability, exploring its impact on the individual and on society. Students will be exposed to the many ways a disability can affect the lives of individuals, the processes by which people with disabilities adapt to their limitations, along with the influence society has in promoting both independence and dependence among people with disabilities. Major theories, research findings and biblical accounts will be used to analyze methods of understanding the challenges faced by people with disabilities and of developing a pragmatic approach to serving them effectively.
