Abstract: 

In Spring, 1994, as an aid to strategic planning in the Capital Regional District of British Columbia, the Simon Fraser University Gerontology Research Centre was commissioned to undertake a literature review and study focussed on younger adults with severe physical disabilities. For purposes of the project, "younger adults" were defined as persons aged 19-55. The main objectives of the project were to a) clarify the characteristics and service needs and preferences of the client group and b) to estimate the extent to which current policies and programs in the Capital Regional District were meeting the needs of clients and their families.
