He writes about families coping with deafness, dwarfism, Down syndrome, autism, schizophrenia, multiple severe disabilities, with children who are prodigies, who are conceived in rape, who become criminals, who are transgender. While each of these characteristics is potentially isolating, the experience of difference within families is universal, as are the triumphs of love Solomon documents in every chapter.

Abstract
Les parents d'enfants handicapés sont avant tout des parents. Bien entendu, les défis qu'ils ont à relever sont grands, mais l'amour qui les porte n'est pas différent de celui de tout parent pour son enfant. C'est ce qui leur permet d'oublier les jours moroses et les moments de doute. Cette force, ce n'est pas du courage ou de la résilience. Il s'agit tout simplement d'amour. Dans le présent ouvrage, qui contient de très nombreuses photos, des parents témoignent de ce lien plus fort que tout, qui doit emprunter parfois des chemins différents, au-delà des mots, au-delà de la différence.

Abstract
A book that shares the unique perspective of a father of a son with autism, with additional reflection from his perspective as a clinical psychologist who specializes in working with families of children with disabilities. It illustrates the impact that a child's disability has on the entire family. It is a valuable aid to parents dealing with fear, guilt, shame, sibling rivalry, marital strain, and other challenges. The book also addresses issues of bonding between parent and child and presents strategies for dealing with challenging behavior. Additional chapters are devoted to special issues for the family of a child with a disability, including the relationship between the parents, the effect on siblings, and the needs of fathers, who the author feels often require special support to express and deal with their emotions in the challenging role of parent to a child with special needs.

Malgré les progrès réalisés pour favoriser l'insertion sociale de ces élèves et la diminution substantielle des classes dites « spécialisées », plusieurs défis subsistent afin d'assurer l'inclusion du plus grand nombre d'élèves dans les écoles québécoises. En effet, les changements structurels et pédagogiques nécessaires s'annoncent difficiles dans un contexte contradictoire où l'on semble prôner l'inclusion tout en exigeant la même réussite scolaire traditionnelle pour tous les enfants.
Les auteurs s'attardent notamment à la façon de contourner les obstacles des apprenants et aux ressources pouvant être mobilisées pour diminuer les exclusions et permettre aux enfants handicapés ou en difficulté d'apprendre et de s'épanouir davantage.
