"See Me, Hear Me", a Guide to Using the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities to Promote the Rights of Children

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.
