A Mug or a Teacup and Saucer?
- 344 Downloads
This is a story about a mug, a teacup and a saucer. When I was asked to talk about my life as the mother of a disabled child in England, I spent ages wondering what I could say. I could spend hours telling you about the fights I have had with education and health services over the years, or I could tell you about the prejudice and bullying we have all had to face because of Hannah’s additional needs. Or maybe I could tell you about the heartache, the worry, the stress and frustration we have experienced. But it occurred to me that many of the readers of this book will already know those stories for themselves whether as professionals working with disabled children and their families or as parents and carers of disabled children or as disabled young people themselves.
