Consumer satisfaction has been studied extensively as it relates to service seeking behavior, positive perceptions of services rendered, and measurable benefit as a result of service delivery. Furthermore, numerous studies have explored the importance of a strong, collaborative home-school partnership for student success. Additionally, previous research has identified children with chronic illnesses as a special population frequently requiring individualized accommodations and modifications to promote success in the educational environment, and therefore testing the limits of the educational system to adequately meet their needs. Finally, research has described the common sequelae of Cystic Fibrosis, including wide-ranging physical, behavioral, and functional consequences. However, these various contributing factors have not yet been synthesized to inspect their impact on parent satisfaction with educational experiences for children with Cystic Fibrosis. The proposed study aims to characterize the demographics of parents of children with CF, describe their responses to questions regarding various aspects of satisfaction, and determine the predictive value of the survey questions for measuring parent satisfaction.
