This is an extremely interesting book that gives a good and fascinating history of the acceptance/inacceptance of people with Down Syndrome within society and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to gain an understanding of this. The bit that fustrated me is that on many occassions the author talks about Down's Syndrome children/adults even though early in the book he says about the importance of using the terminology a child/adult with Down Syndrome. This matter might seem small but it is a big issue when it comes to supporting our society to see the person first and not any disability.
Interesting history of Learning disability in general as well as focus on Downs Syndrome. Easdy to read good background for professionals but could also be a good read others.
