Hidden Tears and Happy Smiles
Living with Andrew and Other Special Children


January 2001 | 94 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Rachel tells a powerful story about the difficulties she faced as Andrew's mother.

Claire Rayner writes of this book:

This account of life with a disabled child and other people with disabled children, written by an author who, herself, started out with a disability is a labour of love that deserves the attention of a great many people who work in this field, as well as, of course, other parents. Its touching, its highly readable, but it is, above all, real. I do recommend it to you.

This book will help professionals understand the difficulties parents have to face. It will help and guide parents with special children. It is powerful because in it we hear the voices of real people.
