This one day course is designed to provide participants with an overview of challenges and strategies to effectively work with parents with cognitive limitations. The training team is made up of professionals with direct working experience with these parents, within child welfare as well as in community programs and clinical settings. Through this training, participants will increase their ability to identify an individual who may have cognitive limitations. The training will encourage participants to reassess case practice and develop new interventions to enhance service delivery to these individuals and ultimately improve outcomes for families and children.


The objectives of this training are to:

1)      Gain a greater understanding of "executive functioning" and the implications of limitations in functioning;

2)      Increase awareness of the needs of parents with cognitive limitations;

3)      Improve the identification and assessment of parents with cognitive limitations and their families; and

      4)      Identify strategies to improve service delivery to these families.
