The State of the World's Children 2013: Children with Disabilities

The 2013 edition of UNICEF’s flagship publication The State of the World’s Children focuses on children with disabilities. It includes contributions by young people and parents who show that, when given that chance, children with disabilities are more than capable of overcoming barriers to their inclusion, of taking their rightful place as equal participants in society and of enriching the life of their communities. As for all The State of the World’s Children reports, the most recent key statistics on child survival, development and protection for the world’s countries, areas and regions are presented at the end of the publication. Here, for the first time, a table on early childhood development is included.
