Adolescence is naturally fraught with confusion: social skills, school, sports, love, acne, and a myriad of other issues are challenges every day. Having even one extra phenomenon, like how to deal with complications resulting from a parent's disability, can feel overwhelming. This book presents multiple aspects of disability in a mainstream culture. It will give readers a guide for developing resilience and finding a voice. Special features include a segment on Myths and Facts, as well as an Ask the Specialist section. Readers will gain a better understanding of self, other people, and the subject of disability itself.
