Sound Advice

Over the last couple of months I’ve been working on an oral history project that sets out to record the life experiences of parents of disabled children. The four women who took part  have each responded to a series of themed interview questions that reveal how their experience has shaped their lives. At the end of the interviews I asked the women what advice they would give to themselves if they could go back in time, or to new parents in a similar situation. This piece, ‘Sound Advice’, is an edited composition of all four women’s responses to that question.

The project has been commissioned by FLO which is funded by East Sussex County Council.

Thanks to Olivia, Janice, Zarifa and Mary for their honest, open-hearted and generous participation in the project.
