Description

It takes a team of professionals working together to support a child's emotional, physical, and academic development. Effective Collaboration for Educating the Whole Child examines collaboration between educators to successfully teach children with complex learning needs, both with and without identified disabilities. This book for primary and secondary general and special education teachers, administrators, and student support specialists explores how to make collaboration and coordination work, who takes responsibility for the process, and why collaboration is central to improving outcomes for students considered at risk. Focusing on coordinating across systems to improve education, the author: - Discusses the roles, responsibilities, and relationships between school professionals, community agencies, and service providers - Offers case examples in each chapter as windows into schools and classrooms - Emphasizes important developmental transitions from the primary years through secondary school and after - Presents personal reflections from parents, students, and professionals Developmentally responsive school environments depend on constructive relationships between the adults in a student's life, making this a vital resource for anyone who interacts with children.
