Disabled children and their families have the same human rights as others, including the right to live 'ordinary lives'. The law in relation to disabled children is complex and frequently misunderstood by those who have duties and responsibilities towards them.

Many families also lack essential information about legal matters which substantially affect their lives and about the ways the law might be used to assist them.

This handbook clearly sets out the law in key areas, in particular children's social care services, education and health care. It includes a summary of the key provisions of the Equality Act 2010, which are newly in force.

Subjects:
Care Standards, Local Government Law, Family Law
Contents:
Legal entitlements
Understanding disabled children's lives

Children's services
Education
Health
Welfare benefits
