Disability Rights - How did that influence More Than a Job?

The job Paige loses is one as a case manager or QP (qualified professional) with people with developmental disabilities. During her self-examination as she puts her life back together she discovers a family secret that relates to the rights of people with disabilities. While this is not a lecture, the story touches on some important topices, like the poor treatment that people who have communication challenges sometimes face, and the rights of people with disabilities to marry, have children.

Read more about the impact of the Disabiilty Rights and Justice movement and how it informed some of this book.
