Abstract

Research understanding the lives of children with disabilities in low- and middle-income countries has predominantly focused on prevalence studies with little progress on evidence based service development. At the same time, global attention in child health has shifted from child survival strategies to those that bring child survival and development together. This review examines whether intervention research can be better aligned with current theoretical constructs of disability and international guidelines that advocate for the realization of rights for children with disabilities and inclusive early childhood development.
