Disabled parents and schools
There is no one definition.
‘ A child or young person who is carrying out significant care tasks and assuming a level of responsibility for another person’ Luke Clements (Carers and Their Rights) 3rd Edition 2009
‘…the person receiving care is often a parent but can be a sibling, grandparent or other relative who is disabled, has some chronic illness, a mental health problem or other condition connected with a need for care, support or supervision’ ( Saul Becker 2000)
I need someone
to tell me,
I’ve asked for
e-mail but they often send print
I use different
ways to the school.
They say I’m wrong.
Car parking is
a big problem.
I have nothing to compare it with.
I didn’t know school had a website.
We changed schools to one with brilliant special needs
I try to talk to teacher to get help for the children but nothing comes
Social service helped out with transport
Support just fades away
Have a trained member of staff talk to
Don’t be so hard on them. Staff shouldn’t have to be reminded
I feel silly telling them
If everyone was asked it wouldn’t seem such a big issue
They include disabled children but don’t tell them adults have disabilities too
I teach my child, and he teaches the teachers
