Every Child Matters Outcomes: What Do They Mean for Disabled Children and Young People?
Sloper, Patricia; Beresford, Bryony; Rabiee, Parvaneh
Children & Society, v23 n4 p265-278 Jul 2009
To date, little attention has been paid to the appropriateness of the Every Child Matters (ECM) outcomes framework to disabled children. This article reports findings from a research project which sought the views of disabled children and their parents about their desired outcomes. Twenty-nine children and 90 parents were interviewed. The findings indicate that ECM outcomes are appropriate to disabled children but can have different meanings. In addition, the need to recognise the importance of maintaining outcomes, as well as progress, is highlighted.
