This book explores the enabling identities and caring practices of parents of disabled children through their engagement with professionals, communities and institutions. It emerges at a key time in legislation and policy related to children, education, health and social care. It... provides a new reading of parents and professionals that moves away from the viewing of disabled families as pathological and dysfunctional.Drawing upon qualitative material from parents and professionals, including ethnography, narrative inquiry, interviews and focus groups, this book brings together feminist and critical disability studies theories.
