The population of women with special needs face unique challenges. Vunerability, abuse and social isolation are common - leading to a much higher incidence of psychological problems, molestation and abuse. The ''Dear Daughter'' series guides challenged young women towards being better informed for safer, happier, more independant lives. ''Dear Daughter'' Book 1 presents social problems faced by adolescent girls and the additional problems that can surface if the young woman has special needs. Presented in a series of questions and answer letters, this book tackles interfamily relations, friendship, relationships, and personal social skills. The issues raised are made easily accessible by the inclusion of boxes that summerize the letters and the highlighting of key issues within the letters. The author offers honest and sensible advice drawn from personal experience that she has gained from raising her daughter and years of teaching.
