Highlights

The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities acknowledge the importance of removing barriers to ensure the social inclusion of children and persons with disabilities. Nevertheless, despite progress registered by many countries in Europe and Central Asia region, most children and adolescents with disabilities still suffer from stigma and ablism, with their inevitable consequences of self-perceived inferiority among children and persons with disabilities and their families and lack of confidence that results in isolation and exclusion.
