Frances’s story1 raises several points. Firstly, I am sure I am not alone among readers in having every sympathy with Frances’s mother and grandmother. I find it is a Canute-like task trying to stem the flood of expectation among professionals and parents that “more must be better”. There is an erroneous belief that more investigations, more professionals involved, more interventions, more physiotherapy or speech therapy or occupational therapy, etc, must be a good thing.
