Family engagement in the education of young children with disabilities is complex and can be overwhelming, especially for those from marginalized backgrounds. Subsequently, voices of families of color from low socioeconomic status are frequently silenced. Two issues that often affect this silencing are cultural differences and conflicting educational views. While we know the importance of establishing multi-disciplinary teams that support and encourage engagement of families from marginalized backgrounds, this seldom occurs. The present case study demonstrates how utilizing a partnership development process supported successful engagement in the multi-disciplinary team approach for the Blakemores, a family of color from a low socioeconomic background.
