The Parents with Disabilities Toolkit provides a summary of disability laws that protect families’ rights. Inside of the toolkit, you will find information on topics like adoption, custody, visitation, family law, and the child welfare system. We have also shared parts of NCD’s report, Rocking the Cradle, with stories from parents who have been treated unfairly because of their disabilities.
Knowledge is power, and helping people understand this issue is very important. Through this toolkit, we hope to get people talking about the unfair way parents with disabilities are treated every day.
