Orr, Robert J|Orr, Robert

“Robert Orr… has achieved the balance of evidenced-based practice with the integration of the concept of ordinariness. This work is a must for not only those working with children with an expressed extra special need, but also all nurses who work with people who have a learning disability.” – Helen Laverty, Health Lecturer, University of Nottingham. “This is a slim, accessible and powerful read with a refreshing message… I strongly recommend this as a thoughtful, poignant and often humorous read for all people working with or caring for children, young people and adults with complex needs.” – PHLD Link. “Innovative and bold… A wide range of ideas and opinions are introduced at a good pace, and the writing is elegant and engaging – sure to be attractive to a wide range of readers… Robert Orr… stimulated us to think in a new way about how some people with complex needs may or may not view the world… “My Right to Play” will be a valuable addition to the field – to our thinking on multiple disability.” – “Eye Contact.”; This lively and accessible book provides a take on life from the perspective of a child who has no sight and no speech and who uses a wheelchair because of physical disabilities. The book: offers a glimpse into the thoughts of such a child, recognizing that family and support workers sometimes get things right and sometimes don’t; enables people new to disability work to avoid pitfalls and take short cuts in becoming interesting and useful to a child with complex needs; and, examines the puzzling behaviour often encountered when working with children who are dependent on others for the ordinary aspects of daily life. Compassionate, sympathetic and down to earth, “My Right to Play” is invaluable reading for a wide ranging audience including the families of profoundly disabled children, teachers, carers, therapists and medical staff.
