In this poster, Pierre Bourdieu's (1986) social capital theory and McMillan and Chavis' (1986) Sense of Community framework are combined to examine how community participation by parents of children with disabilities leads to stratified networks of institutionalized relationships. Implications address the influence of in/formal social institutions within special education.
