From Our Perspective
Exploring the strength and resilience of families that include a parent with a disability
This report examines the strength and resilience of families that include a parent with a disability. The purpose of this exploration is to learn how to tailor research and practice to better meet the needs of these families. Disabilities are often viewed from a deficit perspective, obscuring the strengths that co-exist alongside disabilities. In this report we aim to highlight the families’ strengths without diminishing the challenges that they faced and resilience they demonstrated.
