The Adult Protective Service Worker may also offer services and supports to eligible adults with a developmental disability who
are parents, including providing information about the type of services and supports that are available to their children.
The focus of ongoing assistance from the APSW is on the needs of the parent(s) who have a developmental disability, which
may include services that specialize in teaching parenting skills.
For more intensive help with case management specifically related to the children’s needs, the APSW would support the adult to
make inquiries about case management or other services for children, including child protection services or those that specialize in
teaching parenting skills.
