In this wise, compassionate account, Helen Featherstone, educator and mother of a severly disabled child, traces the long, often heartbreaking road toward acceptance of disability. Drawing on interviews with parents and professionals, published accounts, and her own personal experience, Featherstone discusses how parents and siblings cope with their feelings of fear, anger, guilt, and loneliness and explains what kind of support and understanding can be provided by doctors, therapists, and teachers.
