How can Health Visitors support parents with a learning disability


I am a student Health Visitor completing a project on how Health Visitor can best help parents with a learning disability. I would really love to hear from you on what you think of this topic and any experiences you have.

We use a standardised model to look at parenting capacity, every parent is assessed the same. The assessment looks at the following:

Basic Care
Ensuring Safety
Emotional Warmth
Guidance and Boundaries

Are there any points here that stand out to you? Do you feel a Health visitor supported you well or if not what could gave been done better? Any feedback or experiences from you would be greatly appreciated. I would be using your feedback in my project but I will make sure I maintain your confidentiality and I will not include any user names or the name of this forum.

Thank you for taking the time to read my post.

Best wishes and take care
