Abstract

This paper explores whether the principles of consultation can be applied to broad EP practice, with the aim of building effective partnerships with parents. Parents are an important group of service users for EPs to engage with, as, even though their right to involvement in decision-making regarding their child’s education is well documented, this group has been described as remaining on the periphery of decision making. By exploring the various models and definitions of consultation, five key principles of consultation are proposed and evaluated by parents using a rating scale, supplemented with short open-ended questions. The implications for consultation specifically, and EP practice generally, are discussed, particularly in relation to strengthening partnerships between EPs and parents.
