New RiPfA publication on supporting parents who have learning disabilities
Research in Practice for Adults (RiPfA) has released a new publication - Supporting parents who have learning disabilities: Strategic Briefing.
Estimates are that between 40 to 60 percent of parents with a learning disability do not live with their children. This new publication provides an overview of the available evidence in relation to ‘what works’ in working with parents who have a learning disability, including case study examples of good practice.
The publication is aimed at local authority strategic leaders and decision-makers. It will also be of interest to frontline managers and their staff. In particular, the briefing aims to enable strategic leaders to:
- understand the practice tensions in this area
- become familiar with the key research
- gain a greater understanding as to what will best support parents who have a learning disability.
The briefing has been jointly produced by RiPfA and Research in Practice (RiP).
