SNJ Report: The casual bias and daily discrimination faced by disabled children and their families from ethnic and marginalised communities

A new SNJ survey has highlighted how racial discrimination and unconscious bias are everyday experiences for disabled children and their families from ethnic and marginalised communities. Parents say they, and their children, are visibly less well-treated, and their needs and culture are disregarded by schools, where there is also a lack of representation of non-white staff and leaders.

And this isn’t just parental perception. Practitioners from non-white backgrounds say they have themselves witnessed it happening to families and experienced it themselves. Click here to read the full article and click here to download the report.
