For the first time, adults in their 20s share their real experiences living with disability. This collection of first-person narratives and dialogues is grouped into sections pertaining to different aspects of the writers' lives, including education and work, family and relationships, health and wellness, self-image and sexual relations and includes photographs of the contributing authors.
Between Myself and Them is a rich and diverse set of stories that challenge a homogeneous interpretation of a group of individuals who are sometimes collectively referred to as "the disabled." This book is a valuable resource for families, educators, libraries, community groups, and health and wellness professionals.
