Parenting with a Disability Toolkit

Information courtesy of the National Council on Disability and the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation

The National Council on Disability (NCD) and the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation have released “Parenting with a Disability: Know Your Rights Toolkit”. This toolkit provides a summary of disability laws that protect families’ rights. Learn about adoption, custody, visitation, family law, and the child welfare system.

The report also features stories about parents who have been treated unfairly because of their disabilities from NCD’s report “Rocking the Cradle: Ensuring the Rights of Parents with Disabilities and Their Children”.

Download the report here. For questions or more information, contact NCD at 202-272-2004 (voice), 202-272-2074 (TTY), or ncd@ncd.gov.
