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.

This Innocenti Digest on "Promoting the Rights of Children with Disabilities" examines the situation of the some 200 million children with disabilities around the world and identifies ways to support the realization of their rights. Children with disabilities constantly face barries to the enjoyment of their rights and inclusion in socieyy. But the tide is changing, as many countries have begun to reform their laws and structures in the past two decades to promote the participation of children with disabilities as full menbers of society. This Digest promotes such participation, and discusses all aspects of their development, including access to education, health services and rehabilitation, social and legal assistance, play and cultural activities, vocational and life-skills training. It focuses on the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities which, building on the provisions of the Convention on the Right of the Child, opens a new era in securing the rights of children with disabilities.

Adolescents and youth need to be involved in designing and implementing research protocols, collecting data, contributing in some way to the data analysis, and putting the findings into practice. It is only them that programs and services can be aimed directly at meeting their specific needs and allow them to fulfil their potential as thay make the transition to adulthood. Successful inslusion and participation in adolescence leads to further success when thay are required to assume adult roles and responsibilities.
