Parent support groups are often a routine part of the services provided to families who have children with special health care needs. Often times, however, the groups are poorly attended, despite expressions of interest from parents. A survey of 45 families was conducted to examine who participates, why, and what factors encourage attendance. This article describes the survey responses and offers suggestions regarding utilization of the results for those planning parent support groups.
