Selina Claxton 2007, Disability, Research library, Submissions

This submission is based on findings from a study of the experiences of families caring for children with disabilities in Tasmania (Forgotten families: Raising children with a disability in Tasmania). The study has involved in-depth interviews with 24 families across the state about their daily lives, the additional disability-related expenses they face and their experiences of accessing the services that they need. This submission comments on the impact of the caring role and the assessment process for the Carer Payment (child).
