Thinking and Doing Consent and Advocacy in Disabled Children’s Childhood Studies Research
Disabled children’s childhoods have been absent in broader work around participatory research with children.
Research with disabled children and their families involves distinct ethical considerations and different ethical starting points.
Ethics in disabled children’s childhood studies requires a resistance of narrow conceptualisations of participation and consent.
Researchers must work with children and families around ethics in research which values their everyday lives in and of themselves.
