Submission: Early Years Strategy
Title: Parenting with intellectual disability and learning difficulties
Author: Parenting Research Centre
We applaud the Australian Government’s focus on the early years and their development of a national Early Years Strategy and welcome to opportunity to contribute.
In this submission, we draw on our research, evaluation and practice expertise on parenting and parenting support, as well as our experience in engaging families and early years professionals.
Our submission focuses on the importance of parenting support in the early years – we believe supporting families in their parenting is key to addressing inequality and reducing the impact of disadvantage. Access to effective support enables parents to create nurturing environments for their children.
