A growing number of people with disabilities are choosing to raise families. Although parents with disabilities exist in substantial and growing numbers, community-based services and supports remain scarce for these families. In fact, government-funded home- and community-based services (HCBS), such as personal care attendant (PCA) services, do not generally offer services to assist parents with disabilities with childrearing tasks, because parenting is not considered an activity of daily living. In a discussion at the intersection of the rights of parents with disabilities, a Medicaid policy expert, and lived-experiences from a parent with a disability - this webinar will delve policy solutions for assisting parents with disabilities with childrearing tasks through existing Medicaid-funded services and supports.
