Many thanks for your email which sparked responses of much use to our research
project entitled 'Parents, professionals and disabled babies'. Our 2nd project
update is now available at www.shef.ac.uk/inclusive-education/disabledbabies/
This includes some information on provisional analyses of our pilot interviews
with parents and professionals.
We welcome any comments.
all best wishes
Quoting Adrienne Asch <[log in to unmask]>:
> Hello All,
> I am doing yet more writing on issues of prenatal testing, this time
> explicitly discussing issues of parenthood, parent-child relationships, and
> family life. One of the texts on which I rely for discussions of family
> life, showing that families including children with disabilities fare about
> as well as families with only nondisabled children, is an article by Philip
> Ferguson printed in the book _Prenatal Testing and Disability Rights_. Is
> there other recent work discussing family life and disability by persons
> other than Phil Ferguson, so that I can broaden and vary citations --
> especially when critics insist that this happy story can't be true?
> A second, related question concerns specifically the lives of families and
> children with significant, multiple impairments of both physical and
> cognitive/emotional nature. I would like to read and cite more rich
> qualitative or good quantitative studies of family life for this portion of
> the disability population, not because I want to support impairment
> classifications, but because I am writing for people who do not believe the
> social model and who do need "data" they can be forced to contend with.
> Please send all suggestions to me and if you would like to discuss this
> topic with me on or off list, I would be grateful.
