Parental Learning Disability and Children's Needs : Family Experiences and Effective Practice, Paperback / softback Book

Parental Learning Disability and Children's Needs : Family Experiences and Effective Practice Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Parental Learning Disability and Children's Needs explores how to effectively assess children in families where one or more parent has a learning disability.

These children often have unmet needs because their parents are more likely to be coping with mental and physical illness, domestic violence or substance abuse. The book examines current social care practice in this area, whether it is working, and the impact it has on families.

The authors describe how, although some parents with a learning disability face a significant risk of losing their children, most continue to look after them and, while support provided by social services and other agencies, can be significant it is rarely sustained and the health and welfare of many children suffers as a result.

Case studies and interviews from original research support the authors' recommendations for policy and practice to combat these problems. This book will prove to be an invaluable source of information for all social workers and other professionals working with someone who is both a parent and has a learning disability.
