Title:
'Reflections on a birthday': An auto-ethnographic account of caring for a child with a learning disability
Authors:
Gant, Valerie
Abstract:
This commentary offers some of the author’s experiences of parenting a child with a severe learning disability and complex and challenging behaviours. Drawing on principles of auto-ethnography and critical reflection, the author considers issues of transition from children’s to adult social care services and the potential for support from a new piece of UK Legislation, the Care Act, 2014.
