She is the author of Constructing the (M)other, a collection of personal narratives about motherhood in the context of a society in which disability holds a stigmatized position and her other work is, Undoing Ableism, a sourcebook for teaching about disability and anti-ableism in K–12 classrooms.
Mama Marias is a podcast for parents and caregivers of individuals with special needs. It is called Mama Marias because the two hosts are both named Maria and each has a teenage daughter with special needs. It is their hope to share their experiences and knowledge, which they have gained through both tough and good times over the years. They hope to be a resource and support for families. They want parents to know they are not alone...not alone in the way they are feeling, in the things they are experiencing, and in the things they are dreaming. Mama Marias aims to bring families understanding, peace, and continued hope. Please email the hosts at [email protected] with suggestions or questions. We look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for being a part of our lives because we would like to be a part of yours.
