Supporting the Participation of Disabled Children and Young People in Decision-Making
Franklin, Anita; Sloper, Patricia
Children & Society, v23 n1 p3-15 Jan 2009
Increasing children's and young people's participation in decisions, about their own care and about service development, is a policy priority. Although in general participation is increasing, disabled children are less likely to be involved than non-disabled children and it is unclear to what extent children with complex needs or communication impairments are being included in participation activities. This article presents research exploring factors to support good practice in participation and discusses policy and practice implications.
