The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was written to address the pervasive discrimination that had existed for so many years against the millions of Americans who have physical or mental disabilities, It was enacted for the following reasons:
1.Society tends to isolate or segregate people with disabilities.
2. People with disabilities experience intentional as well as unintentional (and well-meaning) discrimination.
3. Discrimination is pervasive, occurring in all levels of society.
4. Discrimination occurs in critical areas of life, including employment, housing, access to government services, transportation, communication, and recreation.
5. There is often no satisfactory legal recourse for people with disabilities who have experienced discrimination.
6. People with disabilities generally occupy inferior social positions.
7. People with disabilities, as a group of individuals, have been powerless to address these social inequities

Could you please give us a clue about how service users apply for the occupational therapy service of SRACP? As we want to evaluate the convenience for applicants to get access to this service.

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?
