Unto Us a Child Is Born: The Trials and Rewards of Parenthood for People with Learning Difficulties.
Booth, Tim; Booth, Wendy
Australia and New Zealand Journal of Developmental Disabilities, v20 n1 p25-39 1995
Drawing on personal stories from 20 families, this paper explores what it means to be a parent with learning difficulties and looks at the joys and heartaches that parenting brings. The downside of parenthood includes having children taken away, constant surveillance, and inadequate supports; rewards include loving relationships, opportunities for integration, and adult status for the disabled parent.
