This paper teases out how the identities of young people with mind–body–emotional differences are performed and reproduced via their social relationships primarily within school spaces. Drawing upon the concept of embodied social capital (Holt 2008), the paper explores empirically how young people's positionings within a variety of social networks (re)produces differentially valued identity positionings which can become embodied within young people's shifting senses of self.
