Volume 39 | Issue 4 | Winter 2013 | “Parents Supporting Parents"
In this issue of Connections, you will find several papers that discuss the challenges faced by parents of children with disabilities, and about how parent-to-parent supports have been developed to help mitigate these challenges. Parents have been the driving force behind the disability rights movement, leading early and persistently in de-institutionalization efforts, fighting for public funds to support people to live in the community, and having high expectations of schools and other service systems for quality supports that improve quality of life.
