My school, my family, my life

Telling it like it is.

A study detailing the experiences of disabled children, young people and their families in Great Britain in 2006.

This report draws on the main findings and recommendations from four linked projects (2004–6), funded and published by the Disability Rights Commission (DRC) and carried out by a team from the University of Birmingham, into the experiences of disabled children, young people and their families. This report focuses mainly on the findings from the individual and group case studies of disabled children and young people which made up the fourth and final project. These case studies were gathered in England, Scotland and Wales from a range of mainstream primary and secondary schools, specialist units within mainstream schools, colleges of further education and special schools.
