The purpose of this study is to demonstrate three ways of analyzing qualitative interview data: content, cultural models, and narrative analyses. We draw upon the same set of interview data with 250 Latino parents of young children with mental retardation or developmental delay to illustrate these three types of analyses. Interwoven with the analyses are suggestions for ways in which studies in early intervention could be extended by considering different approaches to examining qualitative data.
