PARENTS WITH DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES
A rare and candid discussion on a subject that has long been ignored
This 53-minute video takes you inside the homes and lives of six parents who have various types of developmental disabilities. Find out what helps them succeed and which factors seem to contribute to the loss of their child! You will also hear from university professors, social workers and parenting educators. They join in on a frank discussion about the prejudices parents with development disabilities face, effective support services, and the lack of standardized services.
An important resource for professionals and students in child welfare, developmental disabilities, healthcare, early intervention and education, and vocational rehabilitation.
