Milot, Élise; Turcotte, Daniel; Tétreault, Sylvie
British Journal of Learning Disabilities, v44 n1 p71-77 Mar 2016
In several countries, a growing number of adults with cognitive limitations decide to become parents. However, exercising this right requires the implementation of measures and services that foster their ability to assume parental responsibilities. This study presents results collected in an exploratory study documenting the type of support parents with cognitive limitations may need to play their parental role efficiently and be active members of their community. Data come from semi-structured interviews conducted with 27 professionals and 9 parents with cognitive limitations. Nine types of support were identified from the data collected. Some issues associated with the delivery of such supports are discussed.
