FII (Fabricated or Induced Illness) Survey

The disabled children’s charity Cerebra is concerned about reports from families with disabled children which suggest that a significant number have been accused by practitioners of creating or exaggerating their child’s difficulties when trying to get help to meet their child’s needs.  Instances of this kind are often referred to as ‘Fabricated or Induced Illness’ (FII) or, sometimes, as ‘Perplexing Presentations’ (PP).

Cerebra wants to understand how many parent carers of disabled children have experienced allegations of this kind, when / how these happened and what the consequences were for the family.
