Parents with intellectual disability or learning difficulties tend to have less social support or adequate access to the tools they need to support their families.
Interaction offers pre and post-natal support for parents with intellectual disability in:
preparing for parenthood,
parenting training and coaching,
attending appointments, and
navigating the child protection system.
Training for parents with intellectual disability works best when done in the family home with practical support and coaching. Our staff provide one-to-one training with parents to tailor supports needed to ensure positive outcomes.
The Healthy Start program supports parents with learning difficulties or intellectual disability to improve outcomes for both parents and children. Healthy Start uses a combination of research and practical information to support parents and those around them to create ongoing strategies for successful parenting.
We work alongside parents and their support networks to find out how they learn best and what outcomes and goals they want to achieve.
