Three families talk about how they come to terms with arrival of having a child with learning disabilities.
The first family have grown-up children and a thirteen-year-old girl with Down’s Syndrome; the second an eleven-year-old hydrocephalous boy; the third have a sixteen-year-old hyperactive boy. It is hoped that through the parents talking about their re-adjustment, their successes and failures, other parents may gain hope and encouragement in coming to terms with their particular situation.
This film made in 1977 reflects the cultural attitudes and language of the time it was made. The imagery and film quality may not be to modern standards. But the issues raised are still relevent to today.
