Summary

This book for general and special K-12 educators explores how collaboration and coordination work for educating the whole child, who takes responsibility for the process, and how they can be central to improving outcomes for students with complex learning needs. With a primary goal of exploring the possibilities and potential of professional collaboration and interagency coordination, the author focuses on working across systems to improve the education and development of all students with complex needs, both with and without identified disabilities.Perspectives on collaboration as viewed through the lens of individual professional roles are presented in their own voices. Not only does  Effective Collaboration for Educating the Whole Child promote the belief that developmentally healthy school environments depend upon constructive relationships among teachers, administrators, and a variety of educational support professionals, it also provides direct evidence of the positive effect on students and families.
