Forging a Federal-State Partnership provides an insider’s view of how the federal government assumed a dominant role in disability policy between the Kennedy and Obama eras.

The book highlights the roles played by the federal government and the states in disability policy, focusing on the emergence of Medicaid as the primary funding source for IDD services. It offers a unique perspective on the evolution of public policy which is missing from most renditions of disability history, written by a close observer of the events as they unfolded.

Policymakers, students, and those involved in governmental advocacy will find its historical perspective and insights useful in their work.
