In this conclusion, I explore the ground covered in the chapters through a discussion of agency. I analyse why the disabled child has predominantly been read in the book as the object of practices of making, rather than as an actor in her own right. I reflect on the movement towards agency in the trajectory of the book, which parallels my personal shift towards a capacity to resist. I also draw some conclusions about my disciplinary position in relation to critical disability studies and psychoanalysis, whose antagonism has been a major feature of my work. I conclude by advocating a ‘disagreeable’ politics of disability (see Ahmed, 2010), which would help us to think again about how disabled childhoods are ‘made’.
