Perception of Partnership between Professionals and Parents of Children with Disability in Albania

Arbana Zhapaj

Abstract


Professionals working on children with special needs usually face difficulties on their activity. One of these difficulties consists on lack of communication and especially cooperation with the parents of the children. Parents usually experience deep anxiety during the time of following the educative and therapeutic treatment of their children, which for many of them becomes an endless marathon. But how do professionals view this relation? By the means of research professionals try to understand their relation with parents comparing it with what the latter report. Starting with how parents feel, what do they expect from their children, what are their expectations for the future, what's the family impact, and what do they expect from the professional. Through this overview professionals can conduct an auto-analysis of their perceptions, which can make them reflect on their attitudes, and lead to creation of bridges of cooperation among these actors.
