Perceptions of Parents of Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders towards Their Partnerships with Teachers
Hsiao, Yun-Ju
Journal of the American Academy of Special Education Professionals, p64-74 Spr-Sum 2016
The purpose of this study was to investigate the parent perceptions of partnerships between parents of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and teachers who provided services. The instrument used in this study was the "Beach Center Family-Professional Partnership Scale" ("Family Version"). The results showed that parents of children with ASD were close to satisfied with their partnerships with teachers, but they were more satisfied with family-focused relationships rather than child-focused relationships. Two family demographic predictors that contributed significantly to family-professional partnership were the age of the first child with ASD and type of school services received.
