(Family Division; 10 December 2007; Mr Jeremy Richardson QC (sitting as a deputy High Court judge))

Removing the two children from the care of a mother whose learning disabilities meant that she was unable to parent satisfactorily, the court reviewed the law in this area, and noted that it was not the case that a parent with special needs or a learning disability could never adequately look after a child or children. Unfortunately, in this case the children had suffered significant harm as a result of the care given by the mother, and would suffer such harm in the future if left in the sole care of the mother. With support the mother had learned to provide an adequate physical home environment for the children, but she had little or no comprehension of their emotional needs and feelings.In other cases a parent might be able to be supported so that the child could stay with them, but in this case support had not prevented harm, and it was not possible to identify a realistic package of support that would enable the children to remain with the mother.
