Building good relationships with parents yields benefits for all
Kirsty Russell Consulting helps teachers, early education providers and administrative leaders to better understand the needs of special needs families. With sessions based on first hand experience, teachers and education professionals gain rare insight into the parent experience and learn ways to improve interactions with parents, for the better.
Greater understanding of the pressures facing families leads to more genuine relationships, increased parent engagement and improved student outcomes. These in turn build an environment of trust, goodwill and respect through the entire school school community. It’s true – building good relationships with parents yields benefits for all.
