This book presents the lives of people with intellectual disabilities as a series of transitions and offers us a view of the world that is as complex as any other. The contributors have extensive research experience in this field and provide a comprehensive review of their research, drawing out the implications for policy and practice.
Growing 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. The book explores how such children can best be protected.
