Abstract

Disabled children are among the most marginalised in our society. Their influence has been negligible on policies and service practices that directly affect their lives. Empirical research using innovative methodologies can at least enable their voices to be heard. Based on the contributions of leading researchers and practitioners to a seminar series in the UK, a schema to guide future research was developed that aims to reduce the fragmented approach that exists at present. It considers both the context in which research is conducted and the nature of the investigations. The schema places particular emphasis on research influencing policy and practice.
