This book, originally published in 1995, is about ability, not disability. It is about what children can do and how they can progress. All children have the moral, ethical and legal right to be educated, no matter what barriers society puts in their way because of their physical disabilities. Dual sensory impaired children, like all others, have the right under the Education Reform Act, 1988, to a broadly-based and balanced curriculum that is appropriate to their needs since they, like any children, will not develop educationally unless that curriculum is appropriate to their needs. This book aims to show some of the ways in which individual children can demonstrate and develop their individual abilities.
