Special Issue Information
Resilience is a concept that refers to the tendency of the individual to rebound from adversities based on a variety of factors, both individually and socially. Children and youth with disabilities and their families may face adversities and challenges through their lifespan. The shift from the medical aspect of disability to the social model and, recently, to an embodiment perspective acknowledge the dynamic interactions through the micro and macro system of the individual. Thus, building resilience highlights a range of protective factors which are thought to alter responses to adverse events so that potential negative outcomes can be avoided, and significance is given to socioecological influences on the child rather than purely the biological traits.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to invite researchers with empirical or theoretical work from the field of Special Education who are dealing with interventions aiming to enhance the resilience of children and youth with disabilities.
Topics of interest for this Special Issue include (but are not limited) to the following:
- Implications for practice in building resilience of children and youth with disabilities and their families
- The role of schools in building resilience of children and youth with disabilities
- The role of arts in building resilience of children and youth with disabilities
- The role of teachers and classmates in building resilience of children and youth with disabilities
- Hearing the voices from children and youth and their families regarding ways of building resilience
- Building resilience as part of post-traumatic growth in children, youth, and their families with disabilities
- The role of animals in building resilience of children and youth with disabilities
- The role of families in building resilience to sustain children with disabilities in social and academic growth
- Developing the resilience of children with chronic illnesses
- Effects of the pandemic on resilience of children and youth with disabilities
