Challenging the age old role of the service system as meeting nothing more than the physical needs of a person with disability, this book speaks of the opportunities available both to communities and the establishment to enrich their lives and advocates how a valued social role can be built around that person. By advocates developing wisdom and knowledge in the way they approach the system, it is easier to decide when a confrontation is required or when, by working together, a difference can be made.
