Description
PRACTICAL ISSUES IN DISABILITY
This course will review the natural progression of several age and non-age related physical disabilities such as Alzheimer's and Dementia, Parkinson's disease, CHF, COPD, DM, Spinal Cord injury, and Multiple Sclerosis (subject to change). When possible, individuals with disabilities are invited to participate in classroom discussions to share their first-hand experiences of living with a disability. This course will likely include an observational experience outside the classroom. This may include traveling to someone's home with a disability and/or their place of employment via public or a student's private mode of transportation. Additional details will be reviewed on the first day of class.
