Placing a learning disabled child in residential care: parentsí decision making processes: a grounded theory exploration
This project aims to explore parentsí/Families views and give them a voice to increase understanding of the psychological impacts of parenting a child (of any age) with a learning disability and the processes involved when considering a care placement.
This research has scope to potentially aid parents, families, professionals, service users and organisations. Increased knowledge of the processes involved and identification of the indicators for this process may be influential in terms of the design of adequate support programmes and early interventions to aid the immediate and long-term psychological wellbeing and health for both parent/family and children within the learning disability field.
The aim is to interview parent,guardians or families of children/adults with a learning disability, specifically those who are considering, actively seeking a care placement or when their child is in care. The aim is to discuss this process (what contributed to this decision, what is useful, not useful etc). The research may provide valuable information to guide future practice to support families and children
