Summary
  • The 2016 'Parenting Today in Victoria' survey provided a comprehensive look at the concerns, needs and behaviours of parents in Victoria. This paper focuses on the parents of children with additional needs such as disabilities and chronic health conditions. It explores how these parents are faring, the activities they did with their children, sense of parenting confidence, support networks, experiences of help seeking, and use of playgroups or parenting groups, as compared to parents of children without additional needs. The paper concludes with the implications for policy and the importances of family-centred approaches. The study found that these parents are more likely to have poorer health and wellbeing than other parents, and more likely to be single, female and not in full-time paid employment. However, the parents of children with additional needs interacted with their children in a very similar way to other parents and most were just as likely to have confidence in themselves as parents, excepting parents with a child with psychological or behavioural difficulties.
