Generating data on disability prevalence through school-based surveys: Lessons learned (CIES 2018 presentation)

This presentation was presented as part of the panel, The Equity Initiative: Innovations and Challenges in Using Functionality Screenings with Children, at CIES 2018.

This paper presents the initial results from the rollout of the Washington Group Short Set of Questions with children and adolescents through the school-based surveys. The Short Set is intended for use by adults, and is generally not geared towards gathering data with children. This exercise by FHI 360 aimed to empirically test the appropriateness of the tool with children in different country contexts and age groups.
