Building partnership between parents and the specialists working with children with special needs, is an important and challenging task. In daily work the specialists meet the challenges in understanding fully the point of view of the parents, their worries, hope for change, to understand the behavior and motivation.

Overcoming those challenges will be helpful to the specialists to express their point of view, to interact with the families and include them in the therapeutic process.
