Preface

Growing up in rural South India, I witnessed the lifelong effects of polio in my great-uncle and the effects of disability in my grandfather after he suffered a stroke. There were minimal access to health care of any type and no access to medical rehabilitation.

When, in a one year period, my son had a serious a...
