Защищать здоровье и благополучие семей




The purpose of this paper is to provide background information and offer pragmatic steps in relation to priority no. 6: “Safeguard the health and well-being of family carers”. “In order for a child with intellectual disabilities to grow up and develop within a family, the health and well-being of the family as a whole should be supported. Enabling families to care for their child from the time of identification of intellectual disability through to adulthood can prevent harmful family strain or rejection of the disabled child.”
