Abstract

Individuals with disabilities make up 15% of the global population, or approximately 1 billion people. There are an estimated 93–150 million children with disabilities globally, of which nearly 80% live in the Global South. Yet disabled children have found it difficult to realize their rights in the digital age. For www.parenting.digital, Meryl Alper explores the state of digital inclusion and exclusion when it comes to children with various disabilities and the need to balance vulnerability, support, and safety in order to promote and protect disabled children’s digital rights.
