“Different” Should Never be Limiting!

 A child is a world of potential, and it doesn’t matter if that child has something that limits them physically or mentally. They should be encouraged to succeed in life, just like any other “normal” person.

But how do you do that? John Hendry, in Held Back by Nothing, tells us how through the story of his youngest son, Steven. Born with cerebral palsy, Steven could have been a victim, but with his natural verve for life coupled with parents who never said “never,” Steven beat all the odds. He lives an amazing life by any standards.

If you’re the parent of a child with special needs, Hendry will help you discover his or her uniquely normal potential. While the book relates Steven’s exploits growing up, it is also chock full of helpful hints for parents in need of guidance and inspiration for their own “uniquely normai” child:

  • how to negotiate the school system
  • what to expect from various organizations
  • how to handle the inevitable discrimination.

Editorial Review

5.0 out of 5 stars - Engaging
By Marilyn on August 11, 2011
Format: Paperback

Held back By Nothing is a wonderfully engaging real life success story. It is a heartwarming tale told truthfully and honestly by a parent..... From having your worst nightmare happen with your child and then embracing his disability with a non-defeatist attitude throughout his life to watching him succeed as an adult. I personally remember meeting Stephen with my two young sons when he was working at The Gap. As a parent you always wonder what youngsters might say when they interact with someone with an obvious handicap. My kids only commented on what a neat guy he was and that he was better at picking out clothes than I was!
