In this seminar, we present the final findings from an ESRC-funded project exploring the experience and outcomes of disabled children and young people in England, using two national representative longitudinal data sets: the Millennium Cohort Study and the Longitudinal Study of Young people in England. We describe and discuss findings relating to a) disabled children and young people’s enhanced risks of being bullied, b) the patterning of behavioural problems among disabled children in the early years c) young disabled children’s educational development on entry to school and up to Key Stage 1; and d) educational expectations and educational transitions of disabled young people.
The seminar will be chaired by Tania Burchardt (CASE), and research findings will be presented by:
Stella Chatzitheochari, University of Warwick,
Samantha Parsons, Institute of Education, University of London, and
Lucinda Platt, LSE (Department of Social Policy and CASE).
The research has been carried out in collaboration with the National Children’s Bureau (NCB) and their Council for Disabled Children (CDC), and was supported by the ESRC’s Secondary Data Analysis Initiative, Phase 1.
