Family experiences of child disability in China have not been researched inside or outside China. This study applied a child-based human rights framework in four domains (care and protection, economic security, development and participation) to investigate families’ experiences of the effectiveness of support to fulfil their children’s rights. Analysis draws on the 2006 Second National Survey of Disabled People (the first international analysis of these data) and interviews with families and officials. The research contributes to understanding of child disability rights in China. Results will be useful to policy makers in China and Australia and international agencies who seek to realise the rights of children with disabilities. The project strengthens connections between Australian researchers and policymakers, Rights to Play China and China Disabled Persons Federation.
