Disabled Children’s Childhood Studies: Critical Approaches in a Global Context

Edited By Tillie Curran and Katherine Runswick-Cole

‘This collection centres on the experiences of disabled children and young people and aims to develop theories about their childhoods. The powerful first-hand accounts by disabled children, family members and reflections by disabled adults are aimed to inspire the reader to think and, perhaps, act in positive and productive ways about all children’s lives. The authors oppose the historical global imposition of problematic views of disability and childhood and offer open discussion of responsive and ethical research approaches. New ways of thinking about disabled children’s childhoods in a global context demand poverty reduction and approaches that support families and communities to recognise the contributions disabled children make.’
