Proceedings from the December 8-10, 1994 workshop, "Disability, Work and Cash Benefits," co-sponsored by the National Institute of Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) of the U.S. Department of Education and the National Academy of Social Insurance. The workshop convened some 50-60 of the nations's leading scholars in disability studies, income security policy, labor economics, and rehabilitation to ecplore the overarching policy question before the workshop: How might we alter public policy to promote employment, where feasible, as well as foster community integration and economic self-sufficiency of working-age Americans who find themselves, through illness, injury, aging, birgh, or environmental barriers, to be counted among the nation's persons with disabilities.
