    Many parents with disabilities encounter discriminatory treatment in custody cases based on their status as a person with a disability. Determinations about their child-rearing abilities are often based on bias, stereotypes, and misperceptions regarding disability, rather than on objective evidence.

    In this program, our panel of experts will:

    • Discuss discriminatory treatment of parents with disabilities in custody cases, including cases involving the child welfare system

    • Review the law, including the best interest of the child standard

    • Examine the challenges that attorneys face in representing parents with sensory, mental health, intellectual, developmental, and cognitive disabilities

    This program will also provide attorneys and judges with best practices for evaluating and demonstrating parental fitness, and will conclude with a discussion on federal and state policy and legislative solutions.
