A Point to Ponder... "No one cares how much you know, until they know how much you care" A Patient cited in Primary Caring, JAMA, 1993 Communication Problems Failing to understand families' perspectives Delivering information poorly or incompletely. Devaluing: student family views coping mechanisms Parents Want You to Know... Trust families to care for their child. Listen to my ideas. I have spent many days and nights with my child and am closely attuned to any changes in his or her behavior or condition. I have observations and perspectives worth listening to. Parents Want You to Know... Respond to the family's stated needs... Keep me informed of my child's progress. Knowing the worst is better than what I might imagine. Tell me as soon as possible if my child's behavior significantly changes. Hearing about this ahead of time helps prepare me for plan of action. Parents Want You to Know... Respond to my family's stated needs... Give me information I need to care for my child as early as possible. Instructions in writing are very helpful. Parents Want You to Know... Avoid negative judgments about families... If I miss my appointment, trust that there is a good reason. Don't treat every parent or child you meet the same. We are different, with different needs, abilities, styles, personalities, and values. Families want to know that... We want to be communicated with openly and honestly. We want to be provided with complete and unbiased information. We want our concerns to be acknowledged, needs identified, and strengths built upon. The road toward family centered care is paved with family support. Family Connection of South Carolina is a network of parents working with community professionals to provide parenttoparent support and assurance which strengthens families with children of all ages that have special needs.
