Book summary: Through her work with over eighty parents of special-needs children in parent-support group meetings, seminars and workshops, Nancy O. Wilson has compiled the emotionally-charged stories of the daily struggles of these children and their parents. Her words empower these courageous and tireless people as they work toward exacting what they consider is due their children in the way of appropriate services. Look into the hearts of these parents as they describe their feelings about diagnoses, family and community life, varied interventions and education. They are quick to praise what is truly helpful, and just as swift in denouncing the disservices of softened diagnoses and unending therapies going nowhere. The book addresses a number of experiences - some typical, some unique - in families with disabled children. A short chapter describes the disabilities mentioned by parents, and a list of support groups compltes the book.
