Families of children with disabilities often use the Internet as a key tool to keep them informed about their legal rights, appropriate treatments and services that might be available for their families. Parents often seek advice and support from online networking groups and forums and these can help us shape our plans for ensuring our children get the support they need.
This guide outlines some suggestions to help parents limit the risk of their child having negative experiences online and understand what action can be taken if they do. This guide also suggests some resources that will help children get the most out of the Internet at home and in the community. The guide will present some case studies of actual experiences people with learning disabilities and autism have had online and learning points that can be taken from these experiences.
