Children with intellectual disabilities have the right to be included in all areas of life. How can we make this happen? The “Hear our Voices” project aimed to show the ways in which children with intellectual disabilities can participate in society. It was based upon a previous project that had monitored the implementation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child for children with intellectual disabilities (UN CRPD) in 22 EU member states.
