FRA will present findings from its children and disabilities report during the European Commission’s Day of Persons with Disabilities conference which will take place on 7-8 December in Brussels.

This year, the conference will focus on children and young people with disability. There will be presentations and discussions on the current situation of children with disabilities in Europe, on their access to education and how it contributes to the equal participation of children and young people with disabilities in society. Children with disabilities and parents of children with disabilities will be among the panellists, together with representative organisations or groups of persons with disabilities (DPOs), government representatives, academics and FRA.
