In this video, Jacqui Cooper talks about the role of the carer who cares for a child with intellectual disability. She discusses the different kinds of carers (health workers, neighbours, relatives, etc.) and their role in caring and advocating for the rights of children with disabilities. She talks about how people without disabilities can provide care for children with disabilities, through feeding and physical care as well as advocacy and awareness-raisining. She also speaks about the importance of attitude and body language in providing holistic care for children with disabilities.
