Dr Margaret Spencer - Complex Circumstances: Parents with Intellectual Disability24 June - 11:00 am AWST
Dr Margaret Spencer, University of Sydney, will argue that assessing what the best interest of a child, based on the current reliance on assessment of parenting capacity is a flawed process. She will look specifically at this in relation to families where one or both parents have disabilities. Margaret will propose that instead of asking, "Is this parent capable of parenting?" We should ask “How can the parenting of this child be supported?”
*Please note that due to changes in Dr Margaret Spencer's schedule, this webinar will now be ending at 12:00pm AWST.
