Disability Science Concentration

Disability Science focuses on the interaction of the individual with a disability and the environment, and the process of adaptation to disability through the lifespan. Social and behavioral issues in disability management, mechanisms for facilitating successful community reintegration, and the impact of the physical and sociocultural environment on disability are explored. Within this concentration area students investigate approaches that support, guide, teach, and counsel individuals with disabilities, while addressing aspects of the physical and social environment that can be changed to optimize individual performance.
