Synopsis: Many behavioral health systems are moving to a more family centered model. As the system changes from planning for the family to planning with the family, it is important that families be supported in their role. The use of peer parents as interventionists is an effective tool to assist parents in the creation and implementation of their plan. As interventionists they work intensively with the family. They utilize their peer relationship as a parent of a child with special needs as well as their ability to collaborate and navigate the systems to assist families in meeting their unique needs.
