The article focuses on Michigan native Richard Wooten, who was totally paralyzed neck down. After three months of hospitalization and rehabilitation he was able to use his hands, arms and shoulders and he re-entered high school after missing only a year. Wooten applied to the law school at the University of California, Los Angeles in 1960. But his application was denied because attitudes toward people with disabilities in the 1960s were only beginning to change. Wooten changed direction and worked toward an M.A. degree in rehabilitation counseling. His eligibility helped him getting a job as a counseling position with California's Department of Rehabilitation.
