"From the Publisher:" HOPE FOR THE FAMILEIS by Robert Perske Helps parents and families of exceptional children deal with theology, dignity, sexual development, and family systems.
For parents of a child with a disability who sometimes have felt completely unable to cope with the unique problems confronting them, this book will help them overcome fears and inhibitions. Discussion sections are included.
Robert is widely known for his work on behalf of people with disabilities. In 1968 he received a Rosemary Dybwad International Award, enabling him to travel and study attitudes toward people with disabilities throughout Sweden and Denmakr. In 1987 he and Martha Perske shared the Healing Community Arts & Letters Award at the United Nations in New York. The Perskes have collaborated on two major reports to U.S. presidents: Mental Retardation: The Leading Edge, for President Carter; and, in cooperation with others, Mental Retardation: Century of Decision, for President Nixon.
