How Many Parents with Disabilities are there in the U.S.?

How many parents with disabilities are there in the U.S.? Estimates of the numbers of U.S. parents with disabilities vary between 4.1 million to 9 million. The different estimates reflect different national data sources (American Community Survey, the National Health Interview Survey, the Survey of Program Participation) each of which determines and defines disability somewhat differently. Estimates of the number of parents with disabilities also vary according to whether the estimate includes parents whose children do not live with them or children who are 18 years or older.

Historic Announcement from DOJ and HHS
Monday, 10 August 2015 14:06

Today the U. S. Department of Justice's Civil Rights Division together with the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Civil Rights and Administration for Children and Families issued joint technical assistanceĀ about the applicability of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act to the administration of child welfare programs, activities, and services. This technical assistance includes a cover letter to stakeholders and an explanatory document that contains a question and answer section. This technical assistance is intended to help child welfare agencies and family courts understand their obligations under Federal law to ensure that parents and prospective parents with disabilities receive equal treatment and equal access to parenting opportunities. In many ways, this is a culmination of the work TLG has engaged in and promoted for over 30 years.
