    In March 2013 the Scottish Government appointed researchers from the University
    of Edinburgh/NSPCC Child Protection Research Centre and the University of
    Strathclyde, School of Social Work and Social Policy, to investigate the relationship
    between disabled children and child protection practice. Through interviews and
    focus groups, the researchers spoke with 61 professionals working on issues of
    disabled children and child protection in Scotland. This report is the outcome of their research.
