Disabled children and young people
Despite a range of policy and guidance supporting the participation of disabled children and young people in decision-making processes, the evidence suggests that their participation lags behind that of their non-disabled peers.
Our research objectives centre around promoting the importance of supporting disabled children and young people to be heard on the decisions that affect their lives. In particular, we have undertaken significant pieces of work with those who have more complex communication needs.
