Professionals, Families & Exceptionality:

Positive outcomes through partnerships and trust

There are many people involved in a child's education. A child's family along with teachers, administrators, providers of specialized services in the schools and other professionals all must work together to provide the best education possible for the child. Each member in this collaborative team has an important role to play and it is important that partnership and trust are the basis of this collective goal of success for each child.
