Robert Perske convincingly demonstrates that persons with retardation or other disabilities are capable of functioning in the mainstream of community life. He specifically approaches the issue of those persons moving into otherwise 'average' neighborhoods. With insight and compassion, he shows how their presence in these neighborhoods can be a uniquely positive experience. Martha Perske's sensitive drawings add to this timely book's warm and human appeal.
