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.

Despite international attention and condemnation of discrimination against people with disabilities, including the adoption of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, discrimination against children with disabilities continues across the world. The underlying attitude of the community towards disability is exacerbated during an emergency. An emergency can often directly or indirectly increase the number of children with disabilities or exacerbate their problems.
