Drawing on one-to-one guided conversations with disabled children and follow-up interviews with their parents and siblings, the author takes an in-depth look at the effects of disability on disabled children. Approaching this neglected 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; aspirations for the future and their views on the type of support that might help achieve them; and siblings' perceptions of the effects on them of having a disabled brother or sister.
Informed by the social model of disability, Kirsten Stalker identifies and draws out the implications of her findings for social work and health services. Illustrating effective ways of communicating directly with disabled children, this will prove an invaluable resource for academics, policy makers and practitioners working with disabled children in health and social care settings.
