  • Disabled children and their families to be fully included insociety
  • All disabled children and their families to get the right services and support - no matter where they live
  • Poverty amongst disabled children and their families to be cut by 50% by 2010 and eliminated by 2020
  • An education system that meets the needs of each child and enables them to reach their full potential
