Synopsis: An ecological systems framework was used to develop a university-community partnership designed to examine the personal rewards, family challenges, and support needs of African American fathers who have children with special needs. This theoretical framework also guided the use of qualitative approaches to analyze focus group data and refine theory as it relates to African American fathers who are parenting children with special needs. This qualitative study was implemented to gather data to adapt a model parenting program and evaluate it for use as a locally effective intervention.
