I often offer this book to fellow professionals. I have spent many years working with Physically and, Mentally disabled people. Having started in 1972. Just before Frederick Drimmer published 'Very special People'. Here in the U.K. in some of our then named 'Institutions. We too had some very special people. I was privileged to meet and help care for. Drimmer's book and 'Born Special' tell true unsentimental yet caring stories of People who lived their lives around their 'Specialty.'
Yes! some people would call them 'Disabled' but who is truly able anyway?
I have always said ' But for the grace of God go I'. Could I live such a life? I'm not sure.
Review: Very Special PeopleUser Review - Varmint - Goodreads
narrowly avoids exploitation. and just stops short of wallowing in pity. when you consider the subject matter, that's quite an accomplishment. Read full review
