Module on child functioning

UNICEF / Washington Group on Disability Statistics, (2017)

The Washington Group/UNICEF Module on Child Functioning, finalized in 2016, covers children between 2 and 17 years of age and assesses functional difficulties in different domains including hearing, vision, communication/comprehension, learning, mobility and emotions. To better reflect the degree of functional difficulty, each area is assessed against a rating scale. The purpose is to identify the subpopulation of children who are at greater risk than other children of the same age or who are experiencing limited participation in an unaccommodating environment. The set of questions is intended for use in national household surveys and censuses. Available for ages 2-4 and 5-17 in English, French, Spanish, Vietnamese, Russian, Chinese, Arabic, Portuguese, Brazilian, Khmer

Navigating the landscape of child disability measurement: A review of available data collection instruments

C. Cappa, N. Petrowski , J. Njelesani, (2015)

ALTER, European Journal of Disability Research 9(2015)317–330. The purpose of this paper is to describe the varying scope and content of data collection instruments on child disability and to provide a historical snapshot of the rates of reported disability among children. A total of 716 data sources were identified, corresponding to 198 countries covering more than 95% of the world’s children. The findings reveal a lack of consistent definitions and measures of disability, which contribute to major challenges in producing reliable and comparable statistics.

The state of the world's children 2013: Children with Disabilities

United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), (2013)

The State of the World’s Children 2013: Children with Disabilities examines the barriers – from inaccessible buildings to dismissive attitudes, from invisibility in official statistics to vicious discrimination – that deprive children with disabilities of their rights and keep them from participating fully in society. The report also lays out some of the key elements of inclusive societies that respect and protect the rights of all children, regardless of disability, and progress in helping all children to flourish and make their contribution to the world.
