Protecting Children and Young People
What are the child protection concerns for children with disabilities? What are their views about the child protection system? How can we measure if we have made a difference in ending violence against children? These questions and others are at the forefront of policy, practice and research debates internationally. This book explores the ethical, methodological, and practical challenges in conducting child protection research with deaf and disabled children and young people. This volume draws upon research examples and of how to translate that research into policy and practice. It is written by international specialists in the fields of both child protection and disability. As with other titles in this series the book is written for postgraduate students and academics from a range of disciplines, particularly in child protection, health, social care and education.
