Published by Chrysalis Children's Books (Think About series), 2002
One of a series about disability. Each author suffers from the disability discussed and has, therefore, a unique viewpoint. Limitations are talked about as well as the fulfilment of each individual, and there are interesting sections on the history of the treatment of those with disabilities. We see people coping creatively in school, in sport, in careers and in leisure time. Photographs and diagrams add to the whole. 'Think about' boxes will help children assess disability at a deeper level. Particularly useful for schools.
