Parent involvement in the assessment process is critical to the development of successful audio-logical interventions for children (Matthews, 1995).
Supporting family involvement in the assessment process provides two principal benefits for an audiologist. First, the audiologist can develop an understanding of the family’s priorities, resources, and concerns, which will assist in the development of functional and achievable intervention programs (Turnbull & Turnbull, 1997). Second, the assessment process provides an opportunity for the audiologist to introduce the parent to the issues considered in an audio-logical assessment and the wide variety of factors to be considered in the development of interventions (Luterman, 1991).
