Families are multidimensional units in which relationships are defined and redefined based on the changing variables in the home (e.g., connectedness of family members, the inclusion of a child with a disability, accessibility, use of services) and the response of the parents to these circumstances (Cumming, Marsh, & Higgins, 2018; Hay et al., 2016). Specific support resources provide a protective context for families (e.g., caregivers, information, system and network supports), but parents with a child with a disability still report experiencing stress and feeling alienated from their child’s school and teachers (Hsiao, Higgins, Pierce, Whitby, & Tandy, 2017).
