It is estimated that one in seven people globally lives with some form of disability. The past half-century has witnessed enormous paradigmatic shifts in laws and policies that have greatly impacted individuals with disabilities and their families. People with disabilities are not only children in families; they are spouses, partners, parents, and wage earners. To promote contemporary understanding of the relationship of disability with the development and well-being of children, adults, and families over the life span, Family Relations is planning a "Special Edition" focusing on families and disabilities from interdisciplinary perspectives. This special edition will be guest edited by Anne Farrell and Gloria Krahn.
