[From introduction] This chapter explores more fully why life stories matter, especially to people with learning disabilities. It also traces the influences that have come together to make life stories important now, and reviews the ways in which life stories come to be told. Finally, the chapter draws out some of the ethical and practical issues of life story work, and considers what implications they may have for practice.
