Tuesday, May 10 | 2:00 - 3:00 pm ET Register for the webinar. This webinar will focus on the experiences of parents and families who have lived experience with co-occurring mental health and developmental disabilities. They will discuss their families, the strategies they used, and assistance they received to become successful parents, but also the bias and discrimination they have experienced.
After the completion of the webinar, participants will be able to:
Define eugenics and its relationship to the forced sterilization of people with disabilities in the United States;
Identify instances of bias and discrimination against individuals with disabilities becoming parents;
Identify successful strategies, including the use of assistive technology, in becoming successful parents; and
Identify barriers parents with disabilities face in supporting their families, especially if their children have disabilities themselves.
