Rosemary Murray 29th June 2006

Disabled Children & Young

Peoples Participation Project

In keeping with article 13 Rosemary Murray worked with individual disabled children and young people, support groups, associated professionals and families to identify individual communication needs and to help young people express their views.

Children and Young People were enabled to tell their story using various methods including:

The use of music therapy

The use of Art

Digital photography

Mobile picture phones

Drama and role play

Quizzes

Sibling representation

After identifying the communication methods best suited to individual needs it was necessary to develop young people’s capacity thus enabling them to carry out an advocacy role. Twenty young people formed an advocacy group within the DCYPPP and named themselves 6th Sense. The advocacy group chose to call themselves 6th sense as they saw themselves as “the eyes and ears of Childrens Services Planning and the voice of Disabled Children & Young People.

Capacity building activities include;

Childrens Rights training

information giving sessions from a range of agencies in keeping with (article 17, UNCRC)

learning through play and games (article 13,UNCRC)
