Help and support is available from nidirect and the Disabled Parents Network Opens in a new window provides practical and emotional support to disabled parents. Help is also available from the Disability, Pregnancy and Parenthood website.
Parents may encounter particular challenges related to their disability. These can range from mobility problems that make it hard to pick up your child or push a buggy, to learning disabilities that mean you need help to read letters and understand advice. Disability can also create inappropriate caring behaviours in the children that are in your care.
