Abstract:This multiple case study uses intersectionality and neurodiversity as frameworks to understand the experiences of Somali American families and the educators working with their children. Three primary themes emerged—parenting: intersections among race, disability, and gender; cultural assumptions and family/educator communication; and diversity and agency among mothers. Practical implications for educating students with autism from non-dominant racial/ethnic, linguistic, religious, and cultural backgrounds are discussed.
