Research within the family domain will occur in collaboration with, and direct application to the needs of, families raising a child with additional care needs due to childhood onset impairment. Addressing the crucial and complex role of parents, our research involves multiple methods and varied designs. This work addresses issues of parental mental and general health; service navigation challenges affecting families; and empowerment of families to contribute to their child’s health and wellbeing, supported by informed professionals. Our research informs ways to improve the lifetime health and education service system that surrounds families and the child, adolescent, and adult with impairments.
