Presentation Transcript

  1. Building Relationships with Family Friendly Materials Kat Cripe Florida State University

  2. Something to Remember… • There is no wrong way to make materials • Just some ways that make them more friendly • Materials design is personal preference • It is important to remember families have preferences too

  3. How Do Materials Welcome Your Families? • Is the purpose easily and clearly identified? • Are they easy to read? • Do they provide examples that families can relate to? • Do they enhance the family’s and child’s strengths? • Are they flexible to meet multiple purposes for the family?

  4. Diversity is Everything • Consumers of EI services are many and varied • No single brochure or format will be appealing or effective for everyone • Need to consider literacy and language levels • Need for varied formats and repetition of key concepts • Need to target various audiences (e.g. dad, parents of children with autism)

  5. How Do Materials Engage Families? • Clipart and pictures • Participation opportunities • Match immediate interests or concerns • Connect to others • Move from understanding to application

  6. Clean and Easy • Bullets are our friends • Break up text and keep the reader reading • Tables Talk • Can make a lot of text bearable • Count your words • Less is more and jargon free • The thin line between love and hate • Consistency and creativity must be balanced
