This chapter examines facilitating the voice of disabled children, most especially in the research context. It first reviews some ethical ground rules for consulting with disabled children, and then discusses different methods that have been developed across a range of research and evaluation projects. The chapter then summarises some of the key messages about what disabled children are telling people through such processes. The chapter also emphasises the importance of a listening culture, which encompasses emancipatory and participatory approaches in the research context.

Keywords:   voice, disabled children, research context, ethical ground rules, consultation, key messages, listening culture, emancipatory approaches, participatory approaches
