Growing up in Scotland: The impact of disability on the lives of young children

Date: 18th September 2013
Category: Children with disabilities

A new report presents an in-depth analysis of data from GUS to examine the circumstances and outcomes of children living with a disability in Scotland.

This analysis explores the impact of disability on the child, their parents and the wider family. The analysis found clear differences between disabled and non-disabled children. However, the broad definition applied to disability means that the differences are not huge. It appears that socio-economic differences are, to a large extent, driving the differences in outcomes between disabled and non-disabled children.
