Disabled children and young people are children / young people first and foremost and their wellbeing and protection should be considered in relation to the individual child's circumstances.
The 'Child Protection and Disability Toolkit' has been produced in partnership by With Scotland and the Scottish Government's Ministerial Working Group on Child Protection and Disability. It is aimed at practitioners and managers in child and family and disability services and it's the only toolkit of its kind available to practitioners in Scotland.
The toolkit includes information on research, a set of training and resource materials designed to help professionals understand the issues and good practice guidance to supplement the Scottish Government National Guidance for Child Protection in Scotland 2014. It also contains sections such as 'myth busters', case studies as well as short films in which disabled parents speak of their experiences.
