Abstract

Drawing on one-to-one guided conversations with disabled children and follow-up interviews with their parents and siblings, this book takes an in-depth look at the effects of disability on disabled children. Approaching this subject through the disabled child's perspective, she considers children's understanding of disability and ways of negotiating the experience of disability in their everyday lives. She also examines perceptions of their relationships with professionals and their knowledge and views of service provision.
