A significant body of research has developed in recent years that has aided our understanding of how a range of conditions might affect the offspring of affected individuals. Research relating to the impact of parental Parkinson's disease, however, is still in its relative infancy. This short paper focuses mainly, but not exclusively, on adolescence and briefly outlines findings to date. This is followed by a discussion of research that needs to be undertaken in order to further our understanding of the needs of children of people with Parkinson's.
