Growing Up with Disability by Carol Robinson
Book DescriptionGrowing Up with Disability encompasses a wide range of perspectives on childhood impairment and its social implications. The book adopts a child-centred approach, stressing the importance of communicating with disabled children, and includes interviews and pieces of their own writing. Pre-school and school age children describe their behaviour and feelings within their own families, substitute families, and residential homes. The book explores how such children can best be protected, and how their quality of life can be improved. Using the social model of disability which identifies the barriers to inclusion, contributors give examples of progressive practice, and examine the aspirations of young disabled people, their friendships, and how they come to terms with adolescence and the transition to adulthood.
