Summary

Autobiographical sketches of four Australians living with physical handicaps are presented in this Australian early childhood resource booklet. Life experiences in school and out are reported by a blind man, a young woman who was brain damaged due to injuries in an automobile accident, a mother of a child with spina bifida, and a Doctor of Philosophy in pure mathematics who was born with cerebral palsy. The stories are told in the hope that reading them will provide greater insight concerning how the handicapped can better be helped and in the hope that they educe added respect for the endeavors of the disabled.
