Research has been done to explore the development and advantages of family based practices. However, not enough research has been done to evaluate how to switch from a medically oriented approach to a more family based format in report writing. This study evaluates the importance of family oriented clinical early intervention reports (CARs) through comparison of the comprehension of non-professionals to speech and language evaluations. In this paper, the author will discuss the history of client - clinician relationships, importance of family oriented reports, and strategies for developing a family oriented CAR.
