Opportunities for the majority of children and young people to participate in decisions and issues that affect them have increased significantly in recent years. However, these opportunities have not always been made available to disabled children and young people, particularly those with complex impairments.
Based on a series of eight seminars with local authorities this book sets out the current policy context for disabled children and young people's participation, outlines the barriers and challenges to effective participation and highlights what is working well. It contains a wealth of good practice examples as well as signposting readers to further resources. Making Ourselves Heard will be of interest to those working with children and young people in both universal and specialist settings who wish to ensure that they are doing all that they can to effectively engage with and involve disabled children and young people.
