The theory of Social Capital relates directly to how people build their relationships and networks for short term or long-term gains. Especially for parents of children enrolled in Early Intervention services, diagnosed with a disability or having special needs, the connections parents develop from a therapist to a social worker to an educator and/or mentor is all part of the Social Capital that they invest in for years. This Social Capital investment is based on the experience parents gain through the first day of their role as caregivers. These experiences are primarily based on the hopes and challenges they face. In respect to the available and accessible resources, parents/caregivers move ahead with an educated decision to accept or forego certain services. These decisions taken by parent/caregivers play a key role in shaping the future of their children. It is vital to understand here the role of the professionals who are the social capital of these caregivers and how they work around the Emotional Intelligence (EI) of parent/caregivers in building bridges to important resources and connections to much needed services. Parents invest in building these connection networks for achieving the aspired goals for their children. Hence the concept of Emotional Intelligence becomes particularly important in rendering service efficacy and proficiency. Emotional Intelligence helps to understand one’s own emotions and having the ability to understand the emotions of others to influence them. When professionals exercise their Emotional Intelligence, they exchange feed-back with the parents/care givers, teach them skills to address and cope with stress and challenges. They help parents to deal with change, face challenges and work around perceived failures and manage relationships to build effective networks. Hence parents’ or a care giver’s choice of services or investment in building Social Capital is primarily influenced by the Emotional Intelligence of both, the parents and the professional. It is remarkably interesting to see how one’s Emotional Intelligence impacts the connections and relationships one builds in developing an effective Social Capital.
