Winner Book Award President’s Committee on Employment of the Handicapped
“This compelling true-life story deals with a single parent making the
discovery that her 1 ˝-year-old son is deaf.”
“With humor and openness she describes her denial of his deafness, her
frustrations in dealing with family and experts, and her ultimate decision
to put her son in a special school. Parents of all children will identify
with both the joys and problems Forecki has experienced.”
Marcia Calhoun Forecki has written an engrossing, personal account of her life with Charlie, an adorable, active, deaf seven-year-old. Speak to Me! is the story of an ordinary hearing person confronted with an overwhelming reality—the fact that her son is deaf. Forecki’s struggle as a single parent to care for her child, to find the "right" schools, and to establish communication with her son will strike a familiar chord in all hearing parents of deaf children. All readers, parents or not, will be touched by the mixture of pathos and humor in this well-written account.
Marcia Calhoun Forecki, a former Spanish instructor at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, lives in Council Bluffs, IA.
