Harry and Ocasio-Stoutenburg (both, Univ. of Miami) combine academic expertise with personal experience as parents of children with disabilities in this informative and emotionally driven work. The book provides a qualitative examination of the treatment of children with disabilities and their families using an intersectional approach through the lens of “DisCrit,” a combination of disability studies and critical race theory. Though the volume is intended for educators and academics, it also provides hope, suggestions, and a look into oppressive societal structures that would be useful for parents who advocate for their own disabled children.
