Understanding the Importance of the School-Family Relationship for Students with LDs

The quality of the school-family relationship has a direct impact on student well-being and success. In fact, it has been shown that, among other things, collaboration between teachers, workers, and parents enhances interventions with students, including those with learning or adjustment difficulties, and builds better student-teacher relationships.

The parents of children with LDs or other special needs are indispensable allies for teachers. They have a very detailed picture of their child, particularly outside the academic setting. Their knowledge of their child is further enriched by the expertise of the specialists and educators whom they work with throughout the school year.
