There are overwhelming demands for health and rehabilitation services due to rise in the number of disabled people. The existing literature on disability evaluation has only focused on impairment or functional limitation or earning capacity. They have not considered the skills fundamental to live, learn and work successfully in the community. This book addresses integrated evaluation of disability using ‘Clinical Tools’, ‘Activity Participation Skills Assessment Scale’, ‘Personal Factors Measurement Scale’, and ‘Environmental Factors Measurement Scale’. Physicians from all disciplines can use this method to evaluate disability pertaining to their respective fields.
