Through the Looking Glass a nationally recognized center that has pioneered research, training, and services for families in which a child, parent or grandparent has a disability or medical issue. TLG is a disability community based nonprofit organization, which emerged from the independent living movement, and was founded in 1982 in Berkeley, California. Our mission is “To create, demonstrate and encourage non-pathological and empowering resources and model early intervention services for families with disability issues in parent or child which integrate expertise derived from personal disability experience and disability culture.”
The Center for Rights of Parents with Disabilities We are dedicated to combating discrimination that impacts parenting for parents with disabilities, through direct services, education, research and training. Parents with disabilities experience discrimination in a variety of arenas. From a subsidized housing provider that refuses to allow a child to live with her parent, to a court that refuses custody due to a parent’s disability, disabled parents frequently experience insidious discrimination. This discrimination has a detrimental affect on families, ultimately victimizing both parents and their children.
