Fabric not Fringe

Weaving Family Involvement throughout Training and Practice for Professionals and Advocates Working with Individuals with Disabilities and Special Health Care Needs

Fabric not Fringe

This document approaches family involvement from the perspective of the family discipline itself, and the ongoing paradigm shift in family-centered care--from fringe to fabric. The paper includes a summary of the history of family involvement in the LEND network and a series of 8 individual handouts which detail the definition, need, benefits, resources and strategies associated with each type of family involvement.


This document was created by the Association of Disability Centers on Disability's (AUCD) Family Discipline Workgroup, including CLL's Community Leadership & Advocacy Coordinator, Wanda Felty.
