by Salamone, Julie, Ed.D., Aurora University, 2019, 129; 22584902
Abstract (Summary)

The following study will look at family’s emotional responses to their children who have severe disabilities and how that impacts their relationship with the school district. Direct testimony from court cases are analyzed and discussed to help school district staff understand the emotional side of special education services. The study looks at all of the conflicts that arise during the special education process school districts follow and analyzes where a families emotional responses are coming from. This study looks to uncover that the decisions in the court cases are not the underlying reason for the initial filing, but there is a more emotional reason that families file in the first place.
