    Sports and Disability: Enhanced Health, Self-Efficacy, and Social Inclusion Through Athletic Participation
    (University of Hawaii at Manoa -- Center on Disability Studies, 2017) Moss, Tayo ; Landon, Trenton J. ; Fleming, Allison
    Sports and recreational participation have demonstrated health and social benefits. However, persons with disabilities are typically not provided the same opportunities as people without disabilities. This article discusses the benefits of sports and recreation, and the barriers that have existed for persons with disabilities. The purpose is to demonstrate the need for rehabilitation counselors to consider the utility of physical activity as a way to enhance health, self-efficacy, and community inclusion. Recommendations are presented for rehabilitation counselor advocacy for improved participation in sport and recreational pursuits by persons with disabilities.

    Self-Determination in Social Context: A Social Cognitive Approach
    (University of Hawaii at Manoa -- Center on Disability Studies, 2017) Naranjo, Jason Matthew ; Duesbery, Luke
    There is growing support for situating understandings of self-determination for students with disabilities in social and cultural contexts. However, exploration and expansion of theory is needed to illuminate the complexities of self-determination in the process of academic and career development, particularly for students from culturally diverse backgrounds. In an attempt to create this understanding we propose the use of social cognitive career theory because this theory of career and academic development accounts for both personal background and identity variables (e.g., disability, gender, and culture) and intrapersonal cognitive variables (e.g., coping-efficacy, self-efficacy) (Lent, Brown, & Hackett, 1994). Whereas self-determination theory in special education is primarily concerned with cognitive variables.

    “Friends Give Meaning to Life:” Reframing Friendship for Individuals with Autism that Type to Communicate
    (University of Hawaii at Manoa -- Center on Disability Studies, 2017) Bacon, Jessica K. ; Orsati, Fernanda ; Floyd, Scott ; Khater, Hesham
    We, two able-bodied authors and two authors with autism, use a disability studies framework to understand our experiences of friendship. Taken from a series of recorded conversations over the course of a year, this project describes the development, maintenance, and complications related to our experiences with friendship, including: reframing of friendships, respect for communication, facilitator roles and support, interdependence and reciprocity, and permanency in relationships.
