Parents and Families of Students With Special Needs: Collaborating Across the Age Span
Parents and Families of Students With Special Needs: Collaborating Across the Age Span teaches students the skills they need to effectively collaborate with parents and families to ensure a child's success in the classroom. The text takes a lifespan approach with a special emphasis on the critical transition points in a child’s life. Information is provided on what can be seen at each stage of an individual with disabilities’ development, and addresses the concerns and needs that families may have during these unique phases of growth. The authors provide an in-depth discussion of how parents and families are affected by particular disabilities, family system theory, the laws that affect individuals with disabilities, and assessments for individuals with disabilities. Chapters written by academics and professionals who are also parents of students with special needs bring a diverse range of voices into the narrative.
