Family-centred practice: Family perspectives
Family-Centred practice is a set of values, skills, behaviours and knowledge that recognises the central role of families in children’s lives. Family-centred practice is a way of thinking and acting that ensures that professionals and families work in partnership and that family life, and family priorities and choices, drive what happens in planning and intervention. Family-centred practice builds on family strengths and assists families to develop their own networks of resources – both informal and formal. (Early Childhood Intervention Victoria)
