CHILD PROTECTION — PARENTS WITH INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY

HON ALISON XAMON (North Metropolitan) [10.03 pm]: I rise tonight to speak about parents with intellectual disability and their interaction with our child protection system. A number of individual matters have come to my attention over recent years, and I will indicate and comment on some disturbing trends. Parents with intellectual disability are treated unfairly within our child protection system. This issue has occurred across successive governments, so I certainly am not trying to point the finger at any particular government—it is a system-wide concern.

CHILDREN IN THE CARE OF THE CEO — FOETAL ALCOHOL SPECTRUM DISORDER

526. Hon ALISON XAMON to the Leader of the House representing the Minister for Child Protection:

(1)  Has any funding been allocated in the 2019–20 budget specifically to identify and support children in out-of-home care who may have FASD?

(2)  If yes to (1), how much funding has been allocated and what programs or services has this funding been allocated to?

(3)  If no to (1), why not?
