Family inclusion and people with profound intellectual disabilities: An exploration of the policy-practice interface and the experiences of adult siblings

Taylor, D.,

Academic Literature

2011

This research focused on neglected, but important, issues within the disability field that appeared to not have been previously explored sufficiently within an Australian context. The study examined the policy practice interface with particular emphasis on the experiences of siblings of people with profound intellectual disability. There were two components. First, the research investigated government documents related to family inclusion and disability service provision, using content analysis. Second, the study explored the experiences of adult siblings of people with profound intellectual disability living in group home supported accommodation. The overall aim was to critically evaluate what should be reasonably expected from service providers, in regards to family inclusion, and how this relates to the experiences of adult siblings of people with profound intellectual disability living in group home supported accommodation.
