This report is based on a series of studies of the situation of disabled children in four very different countries, in different region of the world, during 2001-2003. Through listening to their stories, and talking to politicians, officials, human rights institutions, parents, teachers, NGOs and disabled adults, it has been possible to develop a broad understanding of the range of experiences disabled children live with on a daily basis, It has also provided an opportunity to access what is working best to overcome the discrimination and social exclusion. The report seeks to bring those findings together and present both what children say about their lives and the canges that are needed - in government, in civil society and in law, policy and practice - if the rights of disabled children are to be realised.

The purpose for writing this guide was that the CRPD will only be effective for children with disabilities if they themselves, their caregivers, local communities, civil society organization, and children's and disability rights advocates know that it exists and how to use it. Save the Children has responded to this need for information by developing this guide to assist children with disabilities and their advocates to use the new Convention by claiming their rights and begin to build inclusive societies that are equally respectful of all children. Throughout this document an emphasis is place on child participation and case studies are given to substatiate the guide.
