“From ‘why me’ to ‘try me’: a Muslim mother reflects on her journey of raising a child with additional needs’’.

Debbie Kramer-Roy


The story My Daughter - My Inspiration was written by Madiha Sajid, a Pakistani mother of a child with a physical impairment, who participated in a Participatory Action Research project that brought six Pakistani families with disabled children together to explore their support needs in the UK context (Kramer-Roy, 2012). During the study, the individual families initially explored their experiences of welcoming the child into their family. After that three Action Research groups were formed for the fathers, mothers and non-disabled siblings of the families respectively, each of which chose a shared issue to explore through creative activities (Kramer-Roy, 2015) and action research cycles (Kemmis et al, 2004).
