Disabled?...Yes Able?...Also, Yes. A Count Me In Project.
Intended for adolescents, the booklet presents case studies of eight teenagers and their friends to illustrate views of ability and disability. Recounted experiences focus on attitudes and feelings of students with learning disabilities, epilepsy, spina bifida, visual impairments, mental retardation, deafness, and mental illness. Narratives center on such topics as coping with one's disability, stereotyping, personal independence, daily living skills instruction, total communication and communication devices, parent-child relationship, and suggestions for babysitting children with handicaps. A final section briefly describes prevention of handicaps. (CL)
