KIRKUS REVIEW

To my knowledge the first, and an excellent first, book on this subject giving guidance on an always painful problems which demands a realistic rather than emotional attitude on the part of the parents involved. Stressing throughout the need of the handicapped child for security- rather than pity, for participation wherever possible, for the development of self-reliance, the substitution of other activities for those which are not possible, this offers both psychological insight as well as practical advice. Whether your child is retarded, blind, deaf, epileptic, has a speech defect, or has cerebral palsy or rheumatic fever, this makes specific recommendations for the proper techniques to be used by the parent, the schools or agencies that can help, underlining throughout the importance of the right adjustment to be made by the parent as well as the child. The market is clearly defined.
