Making Sense: Supporting Parents with Cognitive Impairment Through Care and Protection

The purpose of this course is to equip workers in the disability and community sectors to work effectively with parents with cognitive disability by providing support to reduce the disadvantage experienced in care and protection proceedings.

The course will be interactive, providing a sound understanding of the care and protection system and relevant law through a variety of case examples. It will stimulate practical ideas for assisting parents with cognitive disability to ‘make sense of the system’, and to respond to systemic expectations if they are to retain or regain care of their children.

Outcomes from the workshop

By the end of this workshop it is expected that participants will be able to:

  • Know the rights of parents with cognitive disability
  • Understand the operation of the child care and protection system and child care and protection law in NSW
  • Be aware of parental rights with regards to adoption, restoration and contact when their children have been removed
  • Support parents with cognitive disability through care and protection processes including establishment, removal, contact, adoption, appeals and restoration
  • Understand the social, emotional and financial implications for parents when their children are removed and how support can be provided

Who should attend

This course has been developed for disability workers and advocates, community service workers, family support workers and case managers who may have the opportunity to support parents with intellectual or other cognitive disabilities.
