"When you're up to your eyebrows in therapists and IEPs and doctor visits and research, it's hard to imagine a time when you'll have to deal with issues like where your adult child is going to live and work and find friendship. Often, we put those thoughts off -- but that time comes more quickly than you think, and without some advance preparation, it's rough on everyone. Morgan, author of Parenting Your Complex Child, provides a calm, experienced voice to lead you through." Special Needs Children (http: //
"The million dollar question for parents of children with disabilities is 'What happens to my child once I'm gone?' There is so much to do, so much to prepare, to plan for, to worry about especially concerning a child with complex disabilities and multiple health concerns. These nagging questions are quieted with preparation for his or her future while you are still able to advocate on their behalf. Peggy Lou Morgan makes all of these tasks seem a little more manageable in her clear, comprehensible and incredibly informative book." --Education Review
..".wealth of information, advice, and strategies to help parents provide their son or daughter with a solid foundation for a fulfilling life." -Education Digest
"The sample caregiver's manual in the appendices is important for anyone working on this daunting task." --Brain, Child Magazine
