Abstract
This two-year study examined the challenges identified by urban Aboriginal families of
children with physical disabilities and determined practical solutions for policy makers
and service providers to help eliminate or overcome these obstacles. The study has
been coordinated by National Association of Friendship Centres, Ottawa and funded
through the Social Development Partnership Program – Office for Disability Issues
of the Government of Canada. Interviews were conducted with Aboriginal parents of
children with disabilities and service providers in the social and health services across
Canada. The study concentrated on Regina but site visits and interviews were conducted
in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. Telephone interviews were completed with
participants in Halifax. These site visits were very enlightening. Although, most of the
issues are common across the country, there are significant issues and unique concerns
in some locations.

Abstract
For the child, play provides a prime medium for positive interaction with the surrounding world and the discovery of pleasure. However, participation in this formative activity by children with motor disabilities can be difficult. The Ludic Model introduces a method of occupational therapy for physically restricted children in which play is understood as a privileged medium through which children can be encouraged towards holistic development, while discovering pleasure through their own capacity to act. The model is applicable to a home or therapeutic setting and encourages optimal autonomy while facilitating a satisfying quality of life for the whole family. Using simple examples to transcend common ethnic barriers, The Ludic Model offers a sensitive new ideal for the therapeutic use of play.

Each monograph contains general information about the culture, its values and recommended ways to interact with persons from that culture. There is also specific information about how disability and rehabilitation are viewed in each culture. The monographs are concise and written in non-technical language, to insure that they are user-friendly for busy rehabilitation service providers.

Abstract
Klane tells the story of Evan through recollections begun at about the time of Evan's tenth birthday—a miracle birthday if ever there was one. She records their life in and out of hospitals, doctor's offices, life-threatening emergencies, treatments, home healthcare, school, all from the moment of Evan's birth. We learn what it is like to be the parent of an exceptional child, as much as we learn what life is like for the child. To help illustrate the life of this family, their experiences, and emotions, Klane has included poems and drawings she created over the years, which have been sprinkled throughout the book, as well as family photographs. All of these are a touching reminder that this family is real and that the issues they face every day are huge. Too, this is as much a how-to book as it is the story of one family. There are chapters included on being an effective team player, taking care of yourself as a parent, learning to trust your own instincts, and how to stand up for yourself and your child when you in disagreement with the professionals. A glossary is included, as well as a medical timeline, which is a bit of a capsulation of the events Evan experienced during each year of his life to date.
