What Can We Do With Those Families?

Too often families are treated disrespectfully, even by those seeking to advance inclusion or person-centred work.

Authors: Christopher Liuzzo and John O'Brien

The history of disability is also a history of professional prejudice against the families of disabled people. Even when professionals believe they are working towards inclusion or adopting person-centred practices it is all too easy for these prejudices to emerge - but now dressed in the latest clothes.

This short paper helps those committed to the proper use of person-centred planning to ensure they enter into respectful dialogue with families and it calls for a deeper understanding of the forces that undermine inclusion for all of us.
