Rapporten lyfter fram en av världens mest utsatta och diskriminerade grupper – barn med funktionsnedsättningar. Enligt rapporten blir dessa barn tre till fyra gånger oftare utsatta för våld jämfört med andra barn. Barn med utvecklingsstörning blir fyra till fem gånger oftare utsatta för sexuella övergrepp jämfört med barn utan funktionsnedsättning. Siffrorna gäller barn i rika länder, i fattiga länder saknas det tillförlitlig statistik.

All too often, invisibility and abuse are the fate

of children and adolescents with disabilities

who are confined to institutions. Facilities are

poor substitutes for a nurturing home life even if

they are well run, responsive to children’s needs

and subject to inspection. Immediate measures

to reduce overreliance on institutions could

include a moratorium on new admissions. This

should be accompanied by the promotion of

and increased support for family-based care and

community-based rehabilitation. Additionally,

there is a need for broader measures that reduce

the pressure for children to be sent away in

the first place. These include the development

of public services, schools and health systems

accessible and responsive to children with dis-

abilities and their families.
