Description

Taking its title from the wordplay of a child who has cerebral palsy, this book spotlights the world of disability- a world that tends to be secret, a source of stigma, shame and disgrace.

The subtle and sensitive photography of Angela Buckland records her journey through this world from when she first suspected that her son was disabled to her decision to record the experiences of seven families with disabled children.

Authors, Kathleen McDougall, Leslie Swartz and Amelis van der Merwe reflect on what it is we try to hide and why. They shed fresh light on the needs and rights of disabled people and their families and encourage us to see disablity differently, to view it as ordinary and everyday.

This is not a book of easy answers, yet it provides families and healthcare professionals with a compassionate, understanding and inspiring guide to ordinary people’s real experiences.
