    Abstract

    The activities of a new younger disabled unit reflect the changing pattern of care now being provided for severely physically disabled young people. A co-ordinated team approach to their rehabilitation has enabled all but a few of the severely disabled to continue living at home. This represents a considerable saving on the cost of hospital-based care and has afforded them the best opportunity for developing their lives to the full and enjoying a satisfactory life in the community.
