The Disabled Parenting Project (DPP) is an online space for sharing experiences, advice, and conversations among disabled parents as well as those considering parenthood. The DPP also serves as an information clearinghouse and interactive space for discussion and connection. The DPP hopes to inform social policy concerning this underserved population through the development of scholarly research, fact sheets, and training resources, as created by and for the community, and will set the stage for additional research and social action to address the important issues of discrimination and disparities.
The Disabled Parenting Project is on a mission to leverage technology in order to create opportunities for parents and prospective parents with disabilities to connect and interact, and serve as an information clearinghouse for relevant information about adaptive parenting. The DPP also seeks to inform social policy through the development of resources, created by and for the disabled parenting community, and to promote social justice for disabled families.
