Janice Fialka and Rich Feldman Present

Janice and Rich’s presentation will assist participants to better understand the challenges of forming and maintaining partnerships between families who have a child with delays or disabilities and professionals who work with them. Drawing from both their professional work and their parenting experiences, they address the unique dimensions which complicate this working relationship from both the parent, self-advocate, and the professional perspectives. Some of the questions they explore are: Can there truly be a partnership? What does each partner bring to the relationship? What strengths? What constraints? What strategies promote the partnership?
