• “Safe and Secure is a MUST-HAVE resource for families who are thinking about their family member’s future – and who doesn’t think about the future? It covers all the essentials that you need to know now, or will in the near future. I reference Safe and Secure often – it is both informative and empowering. I try to tell every family I meet about this book and why they need a copy – it’s that good.”

    Sylvie Zebroff, educator and parent
  • “Safe and Secure has been an invaluable resource families and people with disabilities since it first appeared. This new addition not only brings the same practical, accessible and value based information of previous editions but has added new critical content to enhance its already ‘must have status’. I have used Safe and Secure in courses for families and self-advocates as well as a teaching tool for my students and have only had positive reviews. We are indeed blessed in BC to not only have more than our fair share of innovators and leaders in the disability world, but to have in such leaders people who have the talent and commitment to communicate their messages in ways which are accessible and readily applicable to the lived experience of people with disabilities and their families. This new edition of Safe and Secure does all of this in spades. As a Dad, a disability rights advocate and an academic I urge everyone to read and share this remarkable resource that get better with each new edition.”

    Tim Stainton, MSW, PhD Professor and Director, UBC School of Social Work & Centre for Inclusion and Citizenship
  • “Safe & Secure is an invaluable resource for families and friends gathering around the long-term well-being and independence of individuals with disabilities.
