(M)othering Labeled Children

Bilingualism and Disability in the Lives of Latinx Mothers

«This book offers a window into the lives and experiences of ten amazing immigrant women who have gone to great lengths to support their emerging bilingual children diagnosed with dis/abilities. These are voices our education system often ignores or overlooks, yet their testimonios are so powerful! They offer insights that we can leverage for a more just system for all emerging bilingual students, especially for those who have been diagnosed with a dis/ability.»

Deborah K. Palmer, University of Colorado Boulder, USA

«Cioè-Peña’s work is situated in both refusal and expansion. She refuses a deficit perspective of mothers rooted in standards and norms of whiteness. The expansion is in her focus on those who have been largely neglected by education research – mothers of emergent bilingual children who were also labeled disabled. Her positioning of these mothers as knowledge generators is an essential contribution to conversations about education, language, disability, and race.»

Subini Annamma, Stanford University, USA

«María Cioè-Peña provides a powerful analysis of Latina mothers advocating for their children at the intersection of language, race and disability that challenges deficit perspectives by pointing to the rich cultural and linguistic traditions that they build on as they navigate oppressive systems designed to marginalize them and their children.»

Nelson Flores, University of Pennsylvania, USA
