1. Ederman, Jaclyn. Disabled children write their own book: ensuring disabled children’s rights, well-being, and interests in their services.

Degree: 2014, Ryerson University

While the importance of disabled children’s rights, well-being, and interests are frequently discussed internationally, how they are incorporated in services is rarely mentioned. This study explores traditional and non-traditional approaches by interviewing two community-based service-providers to illuminate which approach comes closer to ensuring disabled children’s rights, well-being, and interests. Thematic analysis produced findings that acknowledged the extent to which the services differ including: service provided, program plans, benefits, and approach to challenges with children. The traditional approach positions disabled children as silent actors by taking control and by its formal structure. The non-traditional approach acknowledges disabled children as social actors by incorporating ways for children to exercise control of their own lives and by its informality, which promotes disabled children’s individuality. These factors suggest the non-traditional approach comes closer to ensuring disabled children’s rights, well-being, and interests. Implications are significant for reconsidering practice and policies in the hope that disabled children’s rights in services are ensured for future generations. Advisors/Committee Members: Panitch, Melanie (Degree supervisor).

2. Skrinda, M. Majella. "You Have to Have Tough Skin": The Impact of Social Exclusion on Immigrant Mothers of Children with Disabilities.

Degree: 2008, Ryerson University

This exploratory research considers the way gender, racialized ethnicity, and disability, as markers of difference, contribute to the social exclusion experienced by immigrant mothers as primary caregivers of child(ren) with a disability. Interviews were held with eight immigrant mothers in the Greater Toronto Area exploring barriers to accessing informal, formal networks of support, and the resulting impact on their lives. The findings include a lack of ethno-specific and extended family support as well as a lack of accessible, transparent government, social service information, and service provision. Other issues concern language, equity and access to services, impact on personal health, caregiving for aging parents, and future concerns for their children’s short and long-term welfare. Recommendations are based on a social inclusion framework of principles, which are relevant to policy makers, service providers, educators, and members of society. Advisors/Committee Members: Panitch, Melanie (Thesis advisor), Ryerson University (Degree grantor).
