Despite the explicit inclusion of disability as a ground for protection against discrimination in the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the reality of disabled children remains largely unchanged in most countries of the world. South Africa, which has introduced a framework of progressive legislation and strategies, provides an interesting model from which to assess progress and possibilities for change. This is an interesting resource for policy makers, planners and CBR managers
