Parents With Cognitive Limitations
Connecticut will have a system that recognizes that many families are headed by a parent with cognitive limitations who will need varying degrees of supportive services throughout their lives. The system will be family focused, flexible and culturally competent.
Our Mission: To bring together parents, state agencies, service providers, and other stakeholders to develop a comprehensive, coordinated, efficient and effective system of policies, practices and services for families headed by a parent with cognitive limitations* so that:
* Parents with cognitive limitations have difficulties with the many facetted tasks of parenting due to deficits in executive functioning. These deficits may include problems with judgment, planning and organization, emotional control, attention and concentration, flexibility, etc.
