Panel: Parenting a Child With a Dis/Ability and Transition

submitted by

We currently observe a rise in new types and uses of the classification of people with dis/abilities, especially targeting and marginalizing individuals at the transition stage. Othering and problem-categorization are characteristics across educational settings and practices. They are intertwined in policy, administration, evidence-based practices, and transition. They are built into pragmatically adopted social perceptions and marginalized procedures. They are taken up in everyday life to handle self and others, in ever-new rounds of medicalization, and generally as self-presentations in daily life, including career opportunities. This implicates and challenges special education as well as other human sciences.

Join us for a rich and meaningful conversation on individuals with dis/abilities’ rights, transition options, dreams, and hopes about the future.
