NIDILRR-funded Consumer Products: Parents with Disabilities

People may be born with disabilities, may develop or acquire them as they grow, or they may develop or acquire them as adults. Just as their peers without disabilities, adults with disabilities may choose to be parents and may seek resources, assistance, or assistive technology that they may need to care for their children, help them with their education, or participate in the community with them. Adults with disabilities have the right to have or adopt and raise children and form their own families. However, they may face barriers along the way, including a lack of assistive technology, societal attitudes about people with disabilities having children, physical and programmatic barriers in their communities, and having to advocate for their rights to be parents. NARIC’s information specialists are often asked for information and resources from parents with disabilities and their families to help them raise and keep their children, including assistive technology, service providers, and community programs. This month, we are highlighting evidence-based consumer products from the NIDILRR community for parents with disabilities, their families, and service providers, which may include guides, calendars, factsheets, and more.

Below, you will find just a few examples of evidence-based consumer products produced by the NIDILRR community:
