Abstract:

This innovative book's straightforward chapters offer parents who have children with special needs a fresh, affirming perspective on the challenges of family life. Practical and nonjudgmental, this book guides parents through the process of adapting to having children with special needs in ways that are positive and fulfilling. It describes specific strategies for success in balancing one's own life; developing a parenting partnership; and interacting with children, friends, relatives, professionals, and others. Candid, inspiring, and often humorous reflections of four mothers who are raising children with disabilities are included throughout. This book provides an exceptionally sensitive portrayal of parenting and reaches across a wide range of special needs.
