'This well written, incredibly emotive and thought-provoking book is about revealing the tensions, dilemmas and impacts for parent's, carers and professionals who have, or come into contact with, disabled babies and children...[It] is valuable in its rich content, but is also theoretically sophisticated. The insights provided for families of disabled children, professionals working with disabled children and students and academics who are interested in disability and families alike will benefit from reading this accessible book.' - Chrissie Rogers, Disability& Society
