The Rehabilitation Movement: A Resurgence in Theory and Practice

By Eileen Wolkstein, JR Harding II

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), Fall 2010

Through the years, the disability movement has challenged and perhaps inspired the rehabilitation community and all those working with individuals with disabilities to reexamine their perspectives, attitudes, language, and approaches to the delivery of services to individuals with disabilities. Speaking from my own professional experience as a rehabilitation practitioner and educator, the practice of rehabilitation has to work side by side with the disability community. To enrich this article, I have called on a professional colleague, JR, who is an individual with a disability. His voice is woven throughout. I credit him and others, disabled and not, who have taught me so many important lessons along the way, helping me experience the intersection of both the rehabilitation and disability movements.
