After Disability:
A Guide to Getting on with Life
Key Porter Books

A sudden disability can seem devastating, but it doesn’t have to spell the end of a full and quality life. After Disability is an all-inclusive, easy-to-follow guide for men and women learning to live with spinal cord injury, brain injury, stroke, arthritis or other disabling conditions. It's also an invaluable resource for loved ones. The book covers self-advocacy, assistive devices and technology, accessible housing, financial matters, health care, employment and education, relationships, transportation, recreation and travel. It offers tips, resources and contact information, as well as experiences of other Canadians living well with disabilities.

“I applaud Lisa for her dedication, for seeing beyond disability to ability, for showing us all how to enjoy the journey of life, come what may.”
From the foreword by David Onley
