In The Picture aims to encourage publishers, illustrators and writers to embrace diversity - so that disabled children are included alongside others in illustrations and story lines in books for young readers.

It is not an attempt to create a separate strand of children’s literature, tackling disability issues.

The project aims to involve people from all the many areas that are concerned with children's books so that they can be part of changing the culture that currently means disabled children are virtually invisible in early years' books.

In The Picture is part of Scope’s Time to Get Equal campaign, which is working to change the way disabled people are perceived and treated.
