Format: Hardcover
I have worked with individuals experiencing disabilties and their families for several years. After The Tears is an honest, informative and poignant collection of experiences of families whose lives have been changed by a family member with a disability. This is a great resource for families and a MUST read for professionals and para professionals. It has raised my awareness and reminded me of both the strength and fragility of the families and individuals whom I have served.

I am a teacher who has never had a child with disabilities. This book really helped me understand what the parents of my students are going through. It is a great book for new parents or friends of parents with a baby with disabilities of any kind.

On the money. Therapeutic for any parent who has had to cope with the diagnosis of a child with a serious disability or illness. An assertion that there is joy and life after the initial grief and shock.

This book helps parents deal with the grief of and practical issues related to having a child with a disability or handicap "challenge". It gives practical advice on just aboutall areas and is an excellent read. I keep a copy on my shelf to loan to those whose children are newly diagnosed and when it is not returned because the borrower loves it so much, I quietly replace it.

I bought this book because every professor in my special education classes said that it would help us understand where parents come from when we teach their students. It was easy to read and I marked it up so much with things I could take with me when I had a classroom that I consider it a great book. I plan on using all my marked sections to help me connect with parents and even recommend it to parents or siblings who might feel alone.
