Summary "This book explores the economic situation of disabled people in developing countries focusing on rehabilitation and uses participatory framework to community development. Although dealing specifically with a case study from Jordan, this needs assessment study provides comparisons with other developing societies. The author considers the prospect for future improvement in disability policy at a time when state budgets are already over stretched by widespread poverty, unemployment and poor health conditions."--BOOK JACKET
