The work of professionals with children with disabilities affects the children's family, while events at home affect what professionals can achieve with the children. In many ways, the child, the family and the professional are intermeshed. From the perspective that many sorts of families can successfully overcome life's challenges, this text describes how professionals can form collaborative relationships with the parents of the children in their care, to optimize the children's development and to enable both family members and professionals to work in the children's interests. The work describes experiences of families who have a child with a disability. It examines old assumptions that disability necessarily has a negative impact on families or that families themselves are in need of therapy simply by virtue of having a child with additional needs. It also offers practical insights and guidelines for action by teachers, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech pathologists and psychologists.
