A Review of Parent-Professional Partnerships and Some New Obligations and Concerns Arising from the Introduction of the SEND Code of Practice 2015
Hellawell, Beate
British Journal of Special Education, v44 n4 p411-430 Dec 2017
This article contributes a current thematic review of literature about the challenges of productive parent-professional partnership working relating to children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). It also reports on an empirical project which explored early experiences of professionals working under the newly statutory SEND Code of Practice 2015 and asks what new challenges have emerged for SEND parent-partnerships. Particular consideration is given to the language of choice and preference in the Code, the new focus on outcomes in the place of specified provision, and the problematic construction of compliant partners.
