The history of the mistreatment and prejudice towards Disabled children and Young people is examined. Solutions to the ongoing issues are discussed for education and social care staff. Many activities are presented in ways children of different ages can relate to.

The website has many  resources including a history and time line activity, examining the oral history of Disability, Children and Young people in the first and second half of the 20th Century. It examines the history of the education of Disabled children from segregation to inclusion, with filmed examples of inclusion working and responding to disability bullying.
