Teacher’s perceptions and attitudes regarding working with parents are critical factors contributing to family-centered service. This survey provides an in-depth understanding of the components perceived by conductors (teachers in Conductive Education settings) as being cornerstone of successful parent-conductor relationships. The Conductors and Parents Questionnaire of children with disabilities was administrated to thirty-seven conductors (97% consent rate). Conductors identified working with parents, exploring parent goals, degree of parental investment and instilling a sense of confidence in parents as the most significant factors enabling a child’s progress. Evidence of significant factors contributing to successful partnerships emphasize delivering services in a wider context, in which families and not just children are the focus for support.
