"This powerful book should be essential reading not just for students and researchers ... For professionals who work with disabled children and their families, reading Disabled Children's Childhood Studies may illustrate how a shift in their understandings of, and attitude towards, childhood and disability brings huge changes in children's lives." - Disability & Society

"The book is a welcome contribution to disabled children's childhood studies because it is well written and provides insightful views, authentic voices and critical analyses of current theories." - Childhood

'This innovative and challenging book aims to reconstruct the central narrative of disabled children's childhoods. It moves thinking outside of the developmental paradigm and away from a focus on health or service-related models, presenting challenges to the ableist hegemony. In doing so, Disabled Children's Childhood Studies reinstates disabled children as children first.' -Child Care in Practice

"The book contains chapters written by a diverse range of authors with varied experiences. Authors include disabled children and their families, educators, and researchers from countries in both the global North and South. Having such a diverse group of authors encourages knowledge sharing and dialogue on more equitable terms, as the book is not dominated by one voice from a particular demographic, be that related to geography, age, or ability. The diversity of voices also makes for an engaging read, and the personal accounts help to concretely contextualize the ideas presented theoretically." - The Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy
