A gulf exists between the rights and the realities of parents with intellectual disabilities. The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities affirms the right of persons with disabilities to marry and found a family. Moreover, in Article 23, states are bound to take effective action and appropriate measures to eliminate discrimination and render appropriate assistance to persons with disabilities in the performance of their child-rearing responsibilities. The brutal reality however is that parents with intellectual disabilities rarely receive appropriate assistance and many have their children taken from them by child protection authorities. This book examines decision-making in child protection and court systems. Applying the discourse ethics of the contemporary German philosopher Jürgen Habermas, the author finds that with respect to parents with intellectual disabilities and their children, the process is anything but just.

This book presents a collection of research-based, effective, and culturally responsive practices that are used in schools and communities to support and empower families of students with disabilities to be equal partners for schools. As the demographics of the U.S. population become increasingly diverse, the U.S. Census Bureau projects that, by 2044, more than half of the U.S. population will belong to a minority group. Currently, students from diverse backgrounds comprise over 53% of the special education student population. While their parents are the key decision makers and advocates who ensure that they receive services and support that address their individual needs, research consistently indicates that families from diverse backgrounds face many challenges that prevent them from taking on these active roles. Along with the improvements in the U.S. since the enactment of its first special education law in 1975, other parts of the world are also making changes to their special education systems in terms of responding to the diverse needs of children and students with disabilities and their families. This book also shares research-based and effective practices from other countries. The studies presented employ both qualitative and quantitative methods to investigate family-school-community partnerships.
