Intended for parents of children with disabilities, the guide lists and provides information on helpful books. Part I presents annotations on books relevant to all disabilities. Topics covered include personal accounts, early intervention at home, special education rights, and disabled adults. Part II focuses on specific disabilities: autism, chronic illness, emotional/behavioral handicaps, epilepsy, hearing handicaps, hyperactivity, learning disabilities, mental retardation, multiple handicaps, physical handicaps, speech handicaps, and visual handicaps. Ten specific topics of interest are addressed in part III: attitudes, behavior modification, death and dying, genetics and genetic counseling, language development, planning for the future, prevention, rights of children, rights of persons with disabilities, and sexuality and sex education. Books for children about children with handicaps are listed in part IV, while references written by people with disabilities are complied in part V. The guide concludes with a list of relevant journals, directories, and indexes. (CL)
