1.Describe the range of emotions associated with being the parent of a child with special needs. Select two emotional states and describe how you as a teacher would you work with a parent experiencing these emotions.-Families who have had to deal with the loss of a loved one, the families of children with disabilities may go through the following emotional states Denial, Guilt, Anger, Depression, Anxiety, Fear. As a teacher I will work with a parent experiencing denial by accepting the difficulty that the family is going through accepting that their child might have some differences. I will be as supporting as possible but without coming off in the wrong way I will do all that I can to help the parents with the resources they need. As fora family experiencing fear, I will make sure to build a trustful relationship with the parents so that they are aware that I am there to assist their child with my fullest capability. I will make accommodations with the parents the same way I would make for any other parent to meet with me on a regular basis to talk about the child’s process, questions or concerns they might be feeling. 2.Identify and describe three roles that a parent of a child who has a disability might undertake that are unlike the roles typically associated with parenting.
