Little research about family-professional partnerships (FPP) focuses on families of children who are deafblind. In this session, we present a survey study of 75 parents of children who are deafblind regarding factors that predict parent satisfaction with the FPP. Results focus on understanding how to improve the FPP in practice. In keeping with the "Be Creative - Innovative Solutions for an Inclusive Life," TASH theme, attendees will walk away with a collective understanding about the importance and relevance of the FPP in an effort to renew the field of special education for the ultimate benefit of students with disabilities.
