Considerations of the disability community within the child protection sector are well-served using an intersectional analytical lens. The concept of intersectionality is about the interrelatedness of our multiple social identities. Further, it is about how these combinations of social identities affect our self-perception and how we are viewed and treated by other individuals, groups, institutions, and larger social structures. This paper intends to study the application of this theoretical framework in child protection research as it relates to disabled children and parents by exploring how intersectionality is examined in the literature in the context of disability. It is our contention that the study of intersectionality as it relates to the disability community remains critical due to persistent scarcity of scholarship on the subject matter in the child protection context.
