dc.description.abstract Children with disabilities in the Juvenile Justice System (JJS) are at greater risk of: delay in growth & development and abuse including violence (CEFA, 2016) This is a form of inequality and discrimination (Bauman, Simser, & Hannan, 2013) There are no specialized services for D/deaf and Hard of Hearing (d/HH) children in the Kenya Government Department of Children’s Services Deafness may present unique challenges in the justice system because no accurate, timely account is heard or spoken. Kenya Sign Language (KSL) is an official language in Kenya (http://kenyalaw.org/kl/index.php?id=398). However, communication barriers still exist in the justice system with ripple effects on freedom of expression and choice for litigants, victims and witnesses with hearing disability. en_US
