In this webinar, Penny Fogg takes us through her research ‘Special education systems making (m)others 'mad'’ undertaken by herself, Katherine Runswick-Cole, also from the University of Sheffield, and Patty Douglas from Brandon University in Canada.
Penny considers the systems in place that deny children proper support by dismissing mothers’ concerns when advocating for their children in school settings, and the impact this can have on those mothers.
