Lourdes Huiracocha studies the way Children with disabilities are cared for in distinctive socio-cultural context of Ecuador’s Azuay province. There are no programs that support the families of children with disabilities, and many of these children do not receive professional care. Aspects she studies include how families experience the birth of a child with disabilities, how they cope and what support they receive from social services and social networks.
