An important contribution to the history of learning disabilities, this new book focuses on changes in family life and learning disability in the twentieth century. The book includes the life stories of parents, as well as siblings, grandparents and other relatives from a wide variety of families, and families from different social classes and ethnic groups.
Witnesses to Change covers the inter-war and post-war period, parents of the 1960s and 1970s, and parents of modern times. In doing so, it highlights changes in policies, attitudes, services and life styles that have taken place over the last century and suggests future change and improvement in support of families.
