dc.description.abstractResearch indicates that award winning children’s literature can be used to better understand the experiences of the (dis)abled community. (Dis)ability in children’s literature is seen clearly in the Dolly Gray Children’s Literature Award young adult novel winning texts. Using the methods of autoethnography and literary analysis, this study explores the representation of (dis)abled and non(dis)abled individuals, specifically siblings, the narrators of many of the novels in question. To do this, these works were analyzed and compared against the researcher’s own lived experiences regarding the (dis)abled community. The theories framing this analysis were social constructionism, critical literacy, and Nikolajeva’s Theory of Narrativity. The findings suggest that these texts present relevant portrayals of a sibling or other family member’s reality. However, some portrayals of (dis)ability featured in the works remain static and do not properly portray the fluidity of the (dis)abled identity.
