Young Children with Disabilities


A student is looking for the number of children in Nova Scotia under the age of 5 with diagnosed/ suspected disabilities or special needs. PALS (2006) does offer some tables for the 5 to 14 age group, but I can’t see anything for the youngest ages. Is there a source that I should be exploring?


There are the following tables, from this publication: Participation and Activity Limitation Survey 2006: Tables and the 0-4 age group is available at the provincial level.
