Disability resources for young people and professionals
At The Children’s Society, we believe every child deserves a good childhood. For many children and young people with disabilities, this is made difficult by the fact that their views and feelings are so often overlooked.
We have drawn together a range of resources designed to inspire and empower disabled young people so that they can take part in the decisions that affect their lives.
Not only that, we want to give disabled children opportunities to express themselves and to have fun.
If you are a professional or a parent, our Disability Toolkit will give you a wealth of tools to use with young people, and keep you up-to-date with research, policy and training opportunities. All the resources on the site have been selected by professionals who work with disabled young people.
Our website Askability, the only symbol-supported website of its kind in the world, allows disabled young people to explore online and take part safely in social networking. Where local authorities subscribe, Askability also offers localised pages featuring news, what’s on and a consultation platform.
