Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0874869153, Hardcover)

Hers may not be a household name(yet), but Linda Bidabe is a hero to literally thousands of people-especially children, worldwide. Now, in this riveting memoir, the rest of us are let in on what makes this Californian special education teacher so unique. A radical who refused to accept the conventional wisdom that the so-called "beanbag kids" in her care would never walk, Linda persisted in her efforts to get even the most severely disabled among them on their feet. Hers may not be a household name(yet), but Linda Bidabe is a hero to literally thousands of people-especially children, worldwide. Now, in this riveting memoir, the rest of us are let in on what makes this Californian special education teacher so unique. A radical who refused to accept the conventional wisdom that the so-called "beanbag kids" in her care would never walk, Linda persisted in her efforts to get even the most severely disabled among them on their feet. In No Ordinary Move she reveals the source of her success and of the passion that drives her. In the process, she takes us through a hardscrabble childhood on a Kansas farm, the self-loathing of adolescence, the heartbreak of divorce and the trials of single parenthood-and haunting memories of "too many small white coffins" of children with severe disabilities who, she was sure, could have been saved.
