Abstract
Available in all official WHO languages (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish), this publication describes how people live with their health condition. It is a classification of health-related domains that describe body functions and structures, activities and participation. The domains are classified from body, individual and societal perspectives. Since an individual's functioning and disability occurs in a context, "ICF" also includes a list of environmental factors. The "ICF" should be useful to understand and measure health outcomes. It can be used in clinical settings, health services or surveys at the individual or population level.
Notes
"The text represents a revision of the International Classification of Impairments, Disabilities, and Handicaps (ICIDH), which was originally published by the World Health Organization for trial purposes in 1980"--P. 3.

Abstract
This two-year study examined the challenges identified by urban Aboriginal families of
children with physical disabilities and determined practical solutions for policy makers
and service providers to help eliminate or overcome these obstacles. The study has
been coordinated by National Association of Friendship Centres, Ottawa and funded
through the Social Development Partnership Program – Office for Disability Issues
of the Government of Canada. Interviews were conducted with Aboriginal parents of
children with disabilities and service providers in the social and health services across
Canada. The study concentrated on Regina but site visits and interviews were conducted
in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. Telephone interviews were completed with
participants in Halifax. These site visits were very enlightening. Although, most of the
issues are common across the country, there are significant issues and unique concerns
in some locations.

Abstract
The Sibling Support Project is a national effort dedicated to the life-long concerns of brothers and sisters of people who have special health, developmental, or mental health concerns.
We believe that disabilities, illness, and mental health issues affect the lives of all family members. Consequently, we want to increase the peer support and information opportunities for brothers and sisters of people with special needs and to increase parents' and providers' understanding of sibling issues.
Our mission is accomplished by training local service providers on how to create community-based peer support programs for young siblings; hosting workshops, social network sites, and websites for young and adult siblings; and increasing parents' and providers' awareness of siblings' unique, lifelong, and ever-changing concerns through workshops, websites, and written materials.
