Nazilla Khanlou "Raising Resilient Children (with Developmental Disabilities): Caregiving and Advocacy in a Multicultural Setting"
Session 2B, Room 106
Abstract: “It’s a joy, blessing…it’s all I thought it would be and more. But it’s also very challenging and unpredictable.” Raising resilient children is a dynamic process that is influenced by individual, family and societal factors. Parents of children with disabilities experience both the rewards of raising their children and the challenges of ensuring helpful support across services. They balance the roles of parenting their children with caregiving and advocating for them. Drawing from community-based studies in the GTA, this presentation considers the effects of gender, social support and migration on parents of children with developmental disabilities.
