Abstract: One of the greatest decisions a couple take during their lifetime is that of giving birth to a human being. This very important decision is the first in a series of other decisions that parents must take in order to bring up their child in the best way possible. The number and complexity of the decisions a couple must take increases considerably for a couple, whose child is handicapped. Hence, in order to be able to reach our decisions based on the necessary knowledge, and when we are in a good state of mind and emotionally stable, we parents of handicapped children need to be given, from the very start, the information, help and support which is necessary. The information we are given must be as comprehensive and comprehensible as possible and should reach us in time. Above all information of this sort is ours by right and should therefore not be given to us as a concession, as often happens at present.
