LAUGHING ALLEGRA The Inspiring Story of a Mother's Struggle and Triumph Raising a Daughter With Learning Disabilities

by | Read by Anne Ford

Biography & Memoir • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

Anne Ford is an admirable woman. As a single mother, she negotiated herself and her disabled daughter through life. Thirty years ago there was little knowledge and even less support for children with learning disabilities, which were perceived by many as imaginary. Ford's struggles were real, and her voice communicates her frustration and tears over her family's broken dreams. Her near hysteria over her child's future in her early years comes across well in her reading. Exhaustively thorough about every aspect of parenting a child with a learning disability, this tape is highly recommended for any relative or teacher of such a child and will strongly increase empathy.
