Supporting parents who have learning disabilities: Strategic Briefing

Research in Practice for Adults (RiPfA) has released a new publication - Supporting parents who have learning disabilities: Strategic Briefing.

Supporting parents who have learning disabilities  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).
