Saba Salman, journalist and editor of Made Possible: Stories of success by people with learning disabilities - in their own words
Beautifully written and absorbing, Love, Learning Disabilities and Pockets of Brilliance shines a joyful light on the kind of good support that enables people to flourish. Sara Ryan's book is a heartening exploration of the extraordinary role families play in the lives of their loved ones and reveals the benefits - for everyone - when practitioners embrace their experience and knowledge. An essential, rewarding read for anyone who cares about their fellow humans.
from the foreword, Elaine James, Learning Disabilities Commissioner and Rob Mitchell, Principal Worker
This book should become a seminal work, central to all social work training. It will teach you more in a single chapter about love, hope and uniqueness than any other core text you can hope to find.
