"Friends of Children with Special Needs" is a compilation of narratives, speeches, reports, articles, and other firsthand accounts that tells the history, work, and current activities of Friends of Children With Special Needs (FCSN). FCSN is a ground-breaking organization run by many dedicated workers and volunteers who hope to fill the emotional, physical, social, and any other needs of families who have children with special needs. These special needs can run the gamut of topics, the spectrum of severity, and different ages, abilities, and longevity.
By putting forward these firsthand accounts from presidents (past and present), volunteers, workers, and families, the work of FCSN is brought to life on the page for readers to not only understand the immensity of the project, but its importance, and most gratifying, its successes.
Well-written, engaging, and compelling, this book grasps the reader's interest immediately, and is organized in such a way that the flow of the narratives is smooth and understandable. A reader immediately feels a connection to all the writers as well as those individuals they hope to help.
