Event description
The need to successfully capture the views and wishes of children is a concept that is both philosophically shared as well as embedded in legislation. Those working with disabled children need to draw on a skills base of creativity, flexibility and advocacy in order to ensure the voice of each child is captured, valued and used to influence and enhance the quality of disabled children's lives and experiences.
