Disabled assistance

     IRC site

CRC Article = 23(2)(3)
The right of the mentally or physically disabled child to special care and assistance is set forth in Article 23(2)(3) of the CRC. These provisions obligate States Parties to ensure the extension to the eligible disabled child, and to those responsible for his or her care, of assistance for which application is made and which is appropriate to the child's condition and to the circumstances of the parents or others caring for the child. States Parties are required to ensure that such assistance is extended free of charge, whenever possible, taking into account the financial resources of the parents or others caring for the child, and that it is designed to ensure that disabled children have effective access to and receive education, training, health care services, rehabilitation services, preparation for employment and recreation opportunities.
