learning disability and parenthood

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Disabled Parents Network : One Thread

I would be extremely grateful for any information regarding services for parents who have a learning disability. Also any experiences of parents and their involvement with social services. I am a student social worker on my final piece of work, I really would like to try to raise the debate and awareness around this area.

many thanks
