This publication is for professionals at United Nations agencies and other stakeholders who want children with disabilities to participate in programs for child development. The publication is by the World Health Organization and UNICEF. It summarizes some of the issues related to child development and disability. It also explains long-term strategies that improve participation and outcomes for children with disabilities in child development programs. The publication includes deaf and hard of hearing children, but only mentions them briefly.
