Providing more support for dads of disabled children: latest research

21 January 2008

A study of almost 100 families has found that providing more support for dads could help improve outcomes for disabled children and young people.

Involving fathers more in consultations with professionals, supporting them in their adjustment to their children’s diagnosis, and meeting their emotional needs could all help maintain family life – a key outcome that parents of disabled children identified as important.
