The intent of this article is two-fold: (1) to describe how a disability culture perspective has informed research and early intervention serving parents with physical disabilities and their babies, and (2) to articulate how this perspective is also guiding intervention for parents with cognitive disabilities and their babies. The term "disability culture" refers to the social model, civil rights or minority model of disability: disability as socially constructed, with an emphasis on its social meaning, and on social obstacles as the primary problem for people with disabilities and their families.
