Summary "This handbook represents the first comprehensive collection of research on communication and people with disabilities. Editors Dawn O. Braithwaite and Teresa L. Thompson have brought together original contributions focusing on the identity, social, and relationship adjustments faced by people with disabilities and those with whom they relate. Essays report on topics across the communication spectrum - interpersonal and relationship issues, people with disabilities in organizational settings, disability and culture, media and technologies, communication issues as they impact specific types of disabilities - and establish a future agenda for communication and disability research. Each chapter provides a state-of-the-art literature review, practical applications of the material, and key words and discussion questions to facilitate classroom use."--BOOK JACKET
