Abstract

Building effective partnerships with families is a recommended practice in early intervention and early childhood special education. The purpose of this critical ethnography was to understand how families experience partnerships in early intervention and through transition to early childhood special education. A series of three interviews was used to construct an understanding of the partnerships families experience. Key findings include factors and experiences that play a role in the establishment and maintenance of family/professional partnerships.
