Parents: Learning Disability

Volume 457: debated on Thursday 8 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what plans she has to provide local authorities with additional support for parents with learning difficulties to care for their children. (119350)

I have been asked to reply.

The Department will shortly be publishing good practice guidance on working with parents with learning disabilities. One of the purposes of this guidance is to help services to improve their support for parents with a learning disability and their children. The guidance will be aimed at both adult’s and children’s services.
