Views of the ethical treatment of persons with disabilities are changing rapidly. The fervently held goals of yesterday are often the rejected status quo of today. Bringing together behavioral psychologists, physicians, consumers, and advocates, this book deals with how things ought to be for persons with developmental disabilities. If you work with persons who have disabilities, you need this book.
