Do You Hear What I Hear?

Parents and professionals working together for children with special needs

by Janice Fialka and Karen Mikus

ISBN 1-882792-85-8


76 pages, Softbound from Proctor Publications.

This book is indeed unique. Ann Turnbull, Co-Director of Beach Center for Families and Disabilities, University of Kansas states in her Foreword, "Cutting through the rhetoric and jargon of the partnership literature, Fialka and Mikus offer us an entirely fresh, dynamic, and interactive way to gain new insights. They have 'colored outside the lines' in creating a dialogue that enables us, the readers, to gain insights about the partnership dynamics between parents and professionals. In their unique creation, we learn about the feelings, hopes, fears, uncertainties, and expectations from both parent and professional perspectives. Whether you are a parent, professional, or both, you are in for a treat in not only getting more in touch with your own feelings but with the feelings of your significant partner. I strong recommend it with every confidence that new insights are here for everyone."

Do You Hear What I Hear? Is designed to be used by parents, professionals, university faculty members, and other trainers. It is filled with thoughtful stories, suggestions for next steps in forming the partnership, and practical insights. Highly readable, it is a resource which can enhance self-reflection, personnel preparation, and parent-professional training.
