The content of this paper was developed based on a review of relevant literature, the NDA’s 2021 consultation with Disabled Person’s Organisations, and findings from the consultation on the State Party report to the UNCRPD Committee coordinated by the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth. The paper outlines relevant background information before setting out our recommendations. The paper also includes a glossary summarising a list of terms which are no longer in use and recommended alternative terminology.
