Disability Policy Issues

This workshop will provide a historical perspective of disability policy in the United States, and will examine how public policy at the State and National level influences services and outcomes for people with disabilities and their families. Examples of legislation that will be examined are the Developmental Disabilities Act as well as the role of Medicaid in shaping long- term care for people whose disabilities persist throughout the life span. Participants will have the opportunity to examine the future trends and directions in disability policy. This workshop does not qualify for NBCC (National Board for Certified Counselors) clock hours in ethics.

This workshop does not have any offerings for this semester.
