Abstract

Abstract of paper presented to the British Psychological society. Addresses the importance of cognitive change in parents of disabled children within a society that views disability negatively. It explores how attitudes to disability identified by a social model of disability might translate to parent views of their disabled child and how this might impact on parenting.
