The Five Love Languages for Families of Kids with Special Needs

This survey wants to know how the five love languages can strengthen relationships is special needs families. Your feedback is appreciated!

The five love languages books by Gary Chapman have helped countless couples and families strengthen relationships. Lately I’ve been thinking about ways to adapt and use the concepts presented in the five love languages books to support families raising kids with special needs.

My guess is that many Different Dream readers have used the five love languages with their spouses and their children with or without special needs. As parents raising children with special needs, you have experience and a knowledge base that could provide great benefit to the disability and special needs community. The short survey below is designed to tap into both your experience and expertise. If you have a few minutes, would you complete the survey? Be assured that your responses will not be available for public view and will be completely anonymous.

    Our kids need a combination approach, of all 5. The response is not typical, and the motivation/reward is not apperaent.

    Kimberlee, your feedback is exactly what’s needed for the book. Thanks for your comment. I hope you filled out the survey and indicated willingness to be interviewed. I would love to hear more about how you used the 5LL! Jolene

    We have six children now ages 16-22 years. Our 17yo and 20yo have special needs. We have found the principles of 5LL work in a very straightforward way with our 4 neurotypical children — identify predominant language or combinations and voila! đŸ™‚ NOT so for the two with disabilities. LL changes according to weather, tiredness, stress, feelings of fear or anxiety, and – dare I say it — hormonal changes (yes, even boys!) Things seem more fluid, and I even find they are so much harder to read. Their affect does not show the same joy or excitement to aid in knowing what makes them really feel happy and connected, so you have to look for other ways like stimming or just appearing contented.

    Hi Debbie,

    That is excellent feedback and just the kind of information I’m looking for. Did you fill out the survey? I hope so. I would love to learn from you!
