Disabled Children: A Legal Handbook 2nd edition | Council for Disabled Children

"Disabled children: a legal handbook" written by Steve Broach, Luke Clements and Janet Read is an authoritative yet accessible guide to the legal rights of disabled children and their families in England and Wales. The authors expertly navigate the many, often overlapping, sources of law, explaining the difference between what public bodies must do to support disabled children and that which they may do.

The handbook aims to empower disabled children and their families through a greater understanding of their rights and entitlements. It is essential reading for the families of disabled children, their advocates and lawyers, voluntary and statutory sector advisers, commissioners, managers and lawyers working for public authorities, education, social and health care professionals, students and academics.

Each chapter has been adapted into a PDF for you to download for free.
