Abstract:

"In Special Parent, Special Child, Tom Sullivan writes the moving and educational stories of parents who struggle daily to make a difference in the lives of their disabled children. From more than two hundred interviews, Sullivan selected six families who speak openly and intimately about complex emotions, about working with and fighting against the medical, educational, and social services systems, about developing ongoing relationships with professionals, handling the inevitable family repercussions, and maintaining strength and hope throughout as they seek the best for their children." "The spectrum of disability in this book - cerebral palsy, blindness, life-threatening illness, deafness, learning disability, and Down syndrome - brings to light an array of concerns affecting parents. Though each family's experience is unique, Special Parent, Special Child shows that there are common bonds shared among all parents of children with special needs." "The wisdom these parents share through the author, who himself is blind, will help all parents fulfill their challenging role."--Jacket.
