Disabled Children

Summary: This document outlines the issues behind rights for children with disabilities, drawing on those articles from the CRC which are most relevant and making recommendations for future action.

Children with disabilities (Disabled children) are children under 18 years of age that have sensory, physical, motor, intellectual, communication or behavioural problems. In Europe moderate to severe disability constitutes 1-2% of all children with a further 10% who often have very significant problems such as ADHD and learning difficulties such as dyslexia.
