Specialist Assessments of Parents with Learning Disabilities

We offer assessments of parents with Learning Disabilities using the Learning Curves Assessment Tools. We also work closely with agencies in supporting parents with Learning Disabilities throughout the assessment process. The assessment is led by a team of highly experienced and qualified Lead Assessors and Family Assessment Support Workers.

The Learning Curves Assessment Tool

The Learning Curves Tool for the Assessment of a parent with a Learning Disability was commissioned by Norfolk Area Child Protection Committee (ACPC) following the death of a baby whose mother had a Learning Disability. The authors are Penny Morgan, Consultant Clinical Psychologist and Andy Goff, Assistant Service Manager for Norfolk Social Services Children and Families Assessment Services. The authors have collaborated to produce a range of materials designed to support those involved in the Assessment of families where one or both parents have a Learning Disability.
