    This presentation will explore findings from a Scottish Government funded study into child protection with disabled children, using Goffman’s frame analysis. It will begin by looking at previous research about the abuse and protection of disabled children and then outline frame analysis and models of disability. The research findings will be presented and discussed, along with their wider implications.
