Understanding Cerebral Palsy provides a refreshing and systematic appreciation of a condition experienced by people across a wide variety of social contexts. However, unlike other publications this is not simply a medical account... but a book that very quickly contextualizes the unique ways in which the individual may experience and manage their cerebral palsy to live their life with support they consider effective. -- from the foreword by Joe Whittaker, Chair of the Alliance for Inclusive Education Special educator, expert on augmentative communication, author, and mother of a young adult with cerebral palsy - Marion Stanton has done it all. While supporting her son's progress through medical, therapeutic, and educational interventions to supported independent living, Marion has accumulated a wealth of information which will help anyone who wants to ensure people with cerebral palsy achieve their full potential. -- Rosemary Crossley, Director, Anne McDonald Centre, Melbourne This book seeks to encourage ways for society to alter its stance over disability from being a problem to be solved to one where the needs of the individual are met by supporting the building of better relationships with the disabled... this is a comprehensive guide to the condition and will raise debate and provide parents and teachers with knowledge to support them to respond to the needs of those with CP in order to enable them to become more independent. -- SNIP
