The Disabled Child’s Participation Rights
Polly Lee Lecturer, Health and social care at South Gloucestershire and Stroud College
All children should be protected by the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, and children with disabilities should also be protected by the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Both conventions are examined extensively in this book. It focuses on a child’s participation rights and their rights to makes choices about their health, education, home life and relationships – and how those rights are promoted and safeguarded.
