Making sense website

Intellectual Disability Rights Service
This report is about the development of the Making Sense website, a resource for those assisting parents with intellectual disability involved in the child care and protection system. Parents with intellectual disability are over represented in child protection matters and often suffer further disadvantage due to incorrect assumptions about their capacity to parent and their difficulty in understanding the system. As well as providing information for Solicitors and Magistrates; disability workers; and family supporters the website has a video called ‘We are a family’ which challenges negative assumptions about parents with intellectual disability.
