It is well-researched that access to childcare increases employment opportunities for women. Mothers of children with disabilities face greater caregiving challenges and have fewer sources of reliable childcare than mothers of typically developing children. The study will examine the demand and supply-side factors for workforce participation of mothers of children with disabilities. While there is evidence from the global north, the association between employment and parenting has been rarely studied among mothers of children with disabilities in low and low-middle-income countries.The study will address the topic of childcare and labor force participation from a cross-cutting lens of childhood disability. The results will contribute toward analytics to bridge the critical knowledge gap to understand the needs of families of children with disabilities and strategies to promote access and availability of inclusive childcare.
