Readings in Rehabilitation Administration fills the gap in the training of human service administrators and managers. The selections reflect the growing needs, trends, and new requirements that directly affect the human services at both the national and local levels.

This text meets the needs of those innovative educators who are responsive to the needs of students, the human resource field, and the disabled. While practitioners are well-trained in their field, many have little or no education or training for the management roles they assume. Readings in Rehabilitation Administration provides, for the first time, a curriculum content to prepare new administrators.

The articles included cover a wide-range of not only current trends but "classic" topics which have passed the test of time. An extensive bibliography categorizes rehabilitation administration/management articles published during the past decade.


"The authors have done an excellent job of putting together useful information. I do think it carries much good information for practicing administrators and supervisors. " — Richard R. Wolfe, Professor, Rehabilitation, University of Northern Colorado
