A Health Handbook for Women with Disabilities

A Health Handbook for Women with Disabilities
by Jane Maxwell, Julia Watts Belser, and Darlena David
2007, 384 pages, illustrated
English ed. ISBN: 978-0-942364-50-7

Women with disabilities often discover that the social stigma of disability and inadequate care are greater barriers to health than the disabilities themselves. A Health Handbook for Women with Disabilities will help women with disabilities overcome these barriers and improve their general health, self-esteem, and abilities to care for themselves and participate in their communities.

This groundbreaking handbook was developed with the help and experience of women with disabilities in 42 countries—women whose disabilities include blindness, deafness, amputations, paralysis, learning difficulties, small stature, epilepsy, arthritis, and cerebral palsy.

Health professionals, caregivers for women with disabilities, and trainers working with disability groups will also find A Health Handbook for Women with Disabilities an essential resource.

  2. Disabilities also come with complications, good thing the government has them covered with SSI disability programs.
