A Deaf Woman’s Ordeal of Misdiagnosis, Institutionalization

In relating the story of how she was misdiagnosed as retarded rather than deaf and mistreated at home and at an institution, a longtime employee of General Motors writes: “I sincerely hope that this book will help other children with as-yet undiagnosed hearing problems be spared the horrors I experienced.” The co-author has written about her autistic child.
