About the DPPI Journal
“I'm glad I'm not the only one!” Disabled mother
The DPPI Journal, first published in 1993, aims to share information and experience on all aspects of parenting with a disability in the UK and overseas.
It provided the inspiration for, and remains an integral part of, the DPPI Information Service now offered at the National Centre for Disabled Parents.
The DPPI Journal is available online and in print, large print (18pt and 26pt bold), Braille and on audio CD. The journal is free to disabled people.
