Teacher-Parent Collaboration: Early Childhood to Adolescence

Teacher-Parent Collaboration: Early Childhood to Adolescence describes the skills teachers will need for productive collaboration with their students' parents. It employs a solution-focused approach which honours the diversity of families, respects the expertise of both parents and teachers and promotes authentic communication between them.

This book describes specific challenges that arise in schools and early childhood settings which commonly require collaboration between teachers and parents. Separate chapters outline how teachers can respond to the needs of parents whose sons or daughters have disabilities or chronic illness, are gifted learners, are displaying disruptive or aggressive behaviour (including bullying) at school, or whose families are enduring adversity or child neglect or abuse. Teacher-Parent Collaboration describes how teachers can collaborate with parents to resolve these challenges to improve the children's functioning and achievement throughout their education years.
