A novel model of care-integrating education, treatment and social and emotional development-that addresses the issues of people with disability

This research examines a new holistic approach of care for persons with cerebral palsy and their families, developed by The Spastics Society of India (now ADAPT). The focus is on a new psycho-social model that combines education, treatment and socio-emotional development in social rather than in hospital settings, making inclusive education in regular schools possible. The author also narrates her experience as a mother, care-giver and professional, and the role of family support.

Based on 40 years' work, the book provides an example of compassionate and effective care as well as its scalability. Using narratives of children, parents, doctors and other professionals, it shares the journey of pioneers who helped and trained others who eventually went on to create similar institutions all over India, empowering both parents and disabled but self-confident professionals.
