I am pleased to announce that I am in the process of organizing the “Rethinking Rehabilitation Task Force,” which will bring together a group of clients/families, scholars familiar with disability from a variety of disciplines, and rehabilitation practitioners in the New York City area to pose questions about how the social model of disability impacts research into, and the practice of, rehabilitation. The project will be supported in part by the School of Professional Studies at the City University of New York.
I am in the process of putting the team together and working on a new draft of the project description. Several members of the “What Sorts” team based here in NYC have already expressed a willingness to participate, and have been wonderfully helpful.
I will post more news of the project as it develops. I am also open to ideas and feedback, as things move along. Stay tuned . . .
