NOTE: Include Me TOO promotes the social model approach to disability and we usually use terminology such as ‘disabled people’, ‘disabled young people’ and ‘disabled children’. However international language within the Commonwealth and other international platforms use ‘persons with disabilities’, ‘young persons with disabilities’ and ‘children with disabilities’ we therefore use ‘international terms’ with any information shared regarding the Commonwealth Children and Youth Disability Network (CCYDN )
