Disabled Children and Work: An Overview of a Neglected Topic with a Specific Focus on Ghana 


This paper provides an overview of issues related to disabled children and work. This is a very unexplored topic and the literature is scant, so the paper first provides an overview of some key relevant background information on: disability globally and in Ghana, disability and employment, disabled children and relevant human rights approaches – the UNCRC and UNCRPD. Next examples of research on disabled children and work are presented and lastly some suggested hypotheses and possible research questions are proposed.
