    Thanks for posting this Russell, and for your ongoing support of the Access blog site. Hopefully the names Margaret and Hal (Harold) Anyon, and their battles for inclusion of all children, will soon better known as a result of the new focus on teaching our NZ history.

    Thanks Hilary. It is never lost on me that there was a time when we would have been under pressure to give up our own children to institutionalisation.

    Even more toxic the shame of disability and difference and the prejudice against children and families.

    Good to give the Anyons the recognition they deserve for their efforts

  • Bob Williams,

    These histories are important to remind ourselves that ideas are always a product of their time. And history does not have a no-stopping rule.

  • Bob Williams,

    Opps sorry my double negatives got the best of me. History has a no-stopping rule.
