The Integrated Children's System (ICS)is currently being implemented in Children's Social Service Departments (SSDs) across England and Wales. The ICS aims to provide a single approach to assessment and review for all 'children in need', based on electronic information recording and sharing amongst different groups of practitioners. Despite its holistic aims, questions have been raised about the use of ICS with disabled children. This research explores the use of ICS with families of disabled children in four local authorities who were piloting the system.
