A new report released this morning says disabled children are more likely to grow up in poverty compared to other children. The research from child poverty action group shows that one in seven children with a disability live in households that earn less than $30,000 a year. They're arguing they're not getting the support they need. Founder of charity Smiledial Kelly Dugan joins Newstalk ZB’s Mike Hosking to discuss this further.
