Embracing the Monster: Overcoming the Challenges of Hidden Disabilitiesby Veronica Crawford
Synopses & Reviews
hat is it like to live with disabilities no one can see? Readers will find out in this honest and gripping narrative of one woman's life with hidden disabilities--including learning disabilities, ADHD, and bipolar disorder. Yet this is more than just her story of battling adversity and coming out a winner. In each chapter, renowned psychiatrist Larry Silver, M.D., shares his insight into how Veronica's experiences--both positive and negative--influenced her academically and emotionally and how early diagnosis and intervention might have benefited her. These two compelling accounts give readers an appreciation for the difficulties and triumphs of living with hidden disabilities and an awareness of what can be done to help.
Book News Annotation:
Crawford founds her study on her own experience dealing with learning disability, but also draws from her work as a disability analyst and consultant. Her goal is to provide insight for teachers, counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, and social workers who want to or need to understand and help people with learning, attention, co-morbid and other hidden disabilities. She does not provide a bibliography.
