Writing for educators, parents, and scholars concerned with social justice and educational equity, disability scholar Collins (language, culture, and society; Pennsylvania State U.-University Park) asks such questions as what constitutes ability and disability; what factors contribute to a child's appearance either as a good learner or as learning disabled; and how sociocultural factors such as ethnicity, gender, class, and language influence the identification of ability and disability. Her answers emerge from 18 months of research, focusing on a single child. The first edition was published in 2003.
