Item description for The Road to Autonomy by Jean Beaton...

"The Road to Autonomy" concerns congenital rubella and how one family handled this crisis. Rubella, another name for German measles, is usually of little significance in young children. However, if a woman contracts this disease during pregnancy, the results can be devastating for the baby. Congenitally impaired deaf-blind babies require intensive intervention before they express any desire to communicate with others. They are in a dark, silent world. It is necessary to work with the baby to encourage him to relate to objects and people so that he will have reason to communicate outside his own person. This is a long and slow process and requires a commitment from the family, doctors, audiologists and teachers. Many of these children are the result of the rubella epidemic of 1964 and 1965. Time is a critical factor and the time to achieve success is now. This is a true story of one of these victims.
