Most intellectual disabilities are non genetic High risk of developmental delay in early childhood Language development often affected Necessity of supporting child development by earlyintervention programs etc.

 

Pregnancies are often unwanted Lack of sex education and insufficient birth control Separation of parent and child often lead to the desire for a second child

Maternal sensitivity and intuitive parental skills do not depend on intelligence no mono-causal relation between parental skills and intellectual disabilities Social factors like poorness, unemployment, bad health conditions, low level of education, experiencing alcoholism, violence or abuse affect parental behaviour

No mono-causal attribution of intellectual disability and child neglect and child abuse Social factors mentioned above should be taken in account here as well

Our society is an Information society,

High amount of written information

People with intellectual disabilities 

do not process information by the way

need time and repetition to learn

Difficulties of parents to recognize the need of the child and fulfill it FIRST! Supporting families with preadolescent and adolescent children

Recognizing the needs of the child and fulfilling it as a basic parental skill

Lacking skill might be a reason for separation of parent and child

Lack of methods and ideas how to teach parents to put the own needs aside

Be aware of the parents needs

High correlation between life quality and family atmosphere

Puberty is a challenge for all parents, for every family! trouble with the changes and the new behavior of their children. people with intellectual disabilities have low self-confidence and self-esteem. Revolt of the children causes high insecurity and helplessness

can develop parental skills

often grow through parenthood

deserve the chance to live together

need a strong lobby

to develop new methods and ideas for family support to do research on the needs of parents with disabilities and there children to accept limitations, and realize when a separation is necessary
