Is your child failing to meet milestones? Have you noticed sluggish feeding and activity? Do you feel something is wrong and have voiced your concerns to your doctor, only to have your doctor brush you off? Or have you been told that your child has pervasive developmental disorder, autism, or mental retardation? If so, this book is for you. Written by Dr. Golder Wilson, a pediatrician/medical geneticist whose own child has a disability, this book offers hope and inspiration.
In this book, Dr. Wilson tells the story of six mothers who have children with disabilities. These women not only tell their story, but also give advice on what to do and how best to handle different situations for other families and health professionals. Dr. Wilson then gives his perspective to help physicians better relate to families with disabled children. You will read how these women and their families have incorporated these children into their lives, dealt with the sadness, met obligations, and moved on to happy, fulfilling lives.
Six Mothers - Six Stories of disAbility is a must read for parents of disabled
children and healthcare providers who provide their medical care!
