Book Description: "Nothing About Us Without Us" is a book of true stories about people's creative search for solutions and is a companion to David Werner's earlier "Disabled Village Children". It is an idea book, written for disabled persons, their relatives, friends, helpers and anyone who favors a society for all. The book explores the development of innovative aids and equipment that can be made at low cost at home or in a small community workshop. Yet it also considers how to achieve fuller integration of disabled people into society: ways to help communities look at disabled persons' strengths, not their weaknesses. Examples of child-to-child activities show how disabled and non-disabled children can work, play and learn together, to enrich one another's lives. The book is based on years of collaborative work by David Werner and the disabled villagers who created and run PROJIMO, an innovative rehabilitation program in rural program in rural Mexico, although it draws on experiences from many lands.
