Living with Disabilities

Welcoming Children with Special Needs: A Guidebook for Faith Communities by Sally Patton (Boston: UUA, 2004) is a particularly useful resource for congregations. Ask the religious education in your congregation if they have a copy or order online at the UUA Bookstore.

Beacon Press has several titles concerning the life of the differently-abled.

Ebay has a short list of films with differently-abled protagonists, including Children of a lesser God (directed by Randa Haines, 1986, R) and My Left Foot (directed by Jim Shaeridan, 1989, R), both of which garnered Oscar nominations.

The Center for Nonviolent Communication has more to say about the benefits of communicating in a less threatening way.

Read more about non-violent communication in Non-Violent Communication: A Language of Life, by Marshall E. Rosenberg and Arun Gandhi (Encinitas, CA: Puddledancer Press, 2003).
