There's interesting, theoretically innovative work being done on disability by several medievalists, if you're interested in exploring disability in history as well. I found the following readings important for your work, most of them are open access.
World Health Organization and the World Bank (2011). World Report on Disability. WHO: Geneva.
Thomas, Carol (2004). How is disability understood? An examination of sociological approaches. Disability & Society, 19(6):569-583.
Shakespeare, Tom (2006). The Social Model of Disability. In Lennard J. Davis (ed.), The Disability Studies Reader (Second Edition), Pp 197-204. New York: Routledge.
Zola, Irving Kenneth (1989). Toward the Necessary Universalizing of a Disability Policy. Milbank Quarterly, 67(2):401-428.

Dear Dr. Mel, may I know more about the nature of CSO service in HK? I wonder who will help offenders to reintegrate into the community.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
