While autism is gaining increasing attention as an important subject of theological inquiry, the maternal experience of caring for a child with autism has had less attention. Traversing issues of gender, embodiment, disability and motherhood, this book explores the distinctness of mothering within the context of autism, examining how theology currently responds to the challenges this lived experience presents.
Weaving together an honest reflection on her own experience with analysis of contemporary theological works on disability and motherhood, Eilidh Campbell reflects on mothering, and especially mothering of autistic children, as a unique site of struggle and resistance.
