In this wise, compassionate account, Helen Featherstone, educator and mother of a severely 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, Mrs. Featherstone discusses how parents and sibligs cope with their feelings of fear, anger, guilt, and loneliness. She also explains what kind of support and understanding can be provided by professionals - doctors, therapists, and teachers.
