Synopsis

Physical Disabilities The Ultimate Teen Guide by Denise Thornton

The issues rising from family, school, and relationships are the same for most teens, but teens who have visual, hearing, or physical impairments have additional obstacles to cope with and overcome as they enter young adulthood. This book addresses the special issues that teens who have physical disabilities must tackle, such as school, relationships, sports and recreation, assistive technology, driving, preparing for life after high school, and more. Teens, parents, teachers, and medical professionals will find this to be a valuable resource.
