Collaboration and Consultation - EDPD6015

Year - 2018

Special educators play an integral role in collaborative approaches to address the needs of students. Effective collaboration and consultation requires special educators to facilitate the effective involvement of students, families, regular educators, therapists, medical practitioners, and community agency professionals to provide the most appropriate supports and programs for children and adults with disabilities in a wide range of school and community settings. To undertake this role, the special educator needs to understand a range of collaboration and consultation models, knowledge and skills in understanding parent and student needs, and effective interpersonal communication skills, including conflict resolution skills.
