Partnerships with Families of Children with Additional Needs


Anne Vise

Partnerships with Families of Children with Additional Needs is a valuable resource for educators who work with children with diverse needs, including those with disabilities, from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, and those who have experienced trauma and stress. Drawing on the latest family-centred practice research, this book shares evidence-based strategies and effective approaches to working with families. It emphasises the importance of close collaboration with families to support access, participation, and meaningful inclusion in educational settings.

Key topics covered include:

  1. Building Relationships: Strategies for establishing strong partnerships with families.
  2. Understanding Family Experiences: Insights into the challenges and experiences faced by families of children with additional needs.
  3. Impact of Caring on Family Members: Recognition of the effects of caring responsibilities on family members and caregivers.
  4. Positive Ways Forward: Practical approaches for navigating challenging situations and supporting families.
  5. Evolution of Additional Needs Support: Exploration of changes in practices and principles over time, informed by legislation, frameworks, and best practices.

This book equips educators with the knowledge and tools needed to effectively collaborate with families and promote meaningful inclusion and support for children with additional needs in educational settings.
