Provides tips on how to community with children and adolescents with disability.
  • When possible, talk to and get information directly from the child or adolescent with a disability, and not only from their caregivers.
  • Be patient. Do not make assumptions. Confirm that you understand what the child has expressed.
  • Where required, identify community members who can facilitate communication with children with disabilities (such as sign language interpreters, Organizations of Persons with Disabilities, inclusive education or special education teachers, other caregivers of children with disabilities, or speech therapists).
