The spirit of this book is stated in its title. It could perhaps have had the subtitles: 'Being Experiences in Childhood' or 'Adventures in Becoming' for the narrative describes in many different situations the joys and therapeutic effects of having special needs met and satisfied. And on reflection, do the individual needs of a handicapped child differ so much in quality from those of the normal child? Much is demanded in the name of social adjustment from the young child, and in a technical, market-oriented society this comes to mean adopting and conforming to a mode of living in which opportunities to play creatively and exploratively are replaced by the seduction of sophisticated toys and compelling modes of entertainment which usurp a child's urge and time to play itself naturally into the world. These stories from play therapy contain many reminders of the often overlooked, even unrecognized, needs and sensitivities of all children. In its warm, caring way the book carries a timely, necessary message from 'special needs' children to society.
