Description

Often when we discuss disability it is through the lens of the disabled parent. While this perspective is important, in this breakout session we will contextualize the internal family dynamics in an examination of their children’s experiences. In doing so, we will discuss the broader social, cultural and political implications of disability within kinship units.
