This course focuses on the reciprocal partnership between the families of children living with special needs and the service team. The learning concerns diverse family systems and the impact that a child with special needs has on family dynamics. Students examine the structural, cultural, and developmental diversities of families in order to validate them as the primary support for children in their learning and development. Working in collaboration with the family and the service team, students demonstrate strategies that engage families in strength based decision-making regarding the learning and development of their child. In addition, students research community resources and recommend referral services.
