Since Owen: A Parent-to-Parent Guide for Care of the Disabled Child.

A 30-year struggle to cope and an ongoing search for answers to his son's multiple disabilities--which remain undiagnosed--form the groundwork of the author's book. An educator and father fo six children, Callanan draws on his extensive experience of life "since Owen" in this resources for other oftenoverwhelmed parents of disabled children. He identifies the issues, points out where to turn and how to move through mazes (hospitals, agencies and services, for starters), how to live with oneself and others, and how to create opportunity through action. He spells out the procedures of pursuing every child's legal right to an appropriate education, as well as for constantly developing independence in the disabled child who will one day move out of the education system into the adult world.
