Dear Visitors:
Federal funding for this website ended in 2003, therefore few materials have been added since that time. Fortunately, there is continued interest in culturally and appropriate materials, curriculum, and programs. Because of this, we have allowed this site to remain as an archive. Please feel free to use this site, but recognize that it is no longer current.

Dunst, C. J., Jenkins, V., & Trivette, C. M (2007) Family Support Scale Reliability and Validity
Asheville, NC
Winterberry Press

This survey questionnaire measures parents' satisfaction with the perceived helpfulness of support. There are 18 items included in this questionnaire. The user is asked to respond on a 5-point Likert scale to identify their supports in informal kinship, social organizations, formal kinship, nuclear family, specialized professional services, and generic professional services. The supportive service providers will be able to identify the areas that need to be improved and addressed to better meet the families' needs. The scale is available in English only. Service providers may administer the scale.
