Christopher's Story Part II, Part 2
Chipmunkapublishing ltd, Jun 1, 2011 - 88 pages
DescriptionChristopher's Story II has been written after the success of the original paperback, published in the hope of raising awareness of (Kanner's) autism and severe challenging behaviour. It continues the Telfer family's story of love and determination to remain together as opposed to place their son in residential care. Julie Telfer wrote of the first book ""I would truly love others to look beyond the disability and see Christopher for who he really is. I hope this book goes some way towards making this a reality."" In Book II it becomes clear that her remarkable work and writing has changed the views of many but that the road towards fair and unprejudiced services and opportunities for all is far from over.Luckily it also becomes clear that she, her family, and her son, have the determination to continue walking this road.
