He's Staying at Home - Muriel LaDuke on Tim, Her Son with Disabilities
- Main contributor
Indiana Disability History Project
Muriel LaDuke's third child, Tim, was born in New Albany, Indiana with physical disabilities. A few months after his birth in 1959, a doctor told her not to bother teaching Tim to do anything. When Tim was about five, doctors suggested Muscatatuck. After visiting, Muriel said, "No, I'm not going to do that." Instead, Tim grew up with his brothers at home. His brothers made sure to include him in all the neighborhood activities.
