What Lies Underneath? An Inter‐organizational Analysis of Collaboration between Education and Social Work

Show Summary Details

Preview

This paper draws upon qualitative data from a study that examines inter‐professional and inter‐agency collaboration in special educational needs assessments. It is shown that, despite the attempts of a number of government policies to intensify and enhance such interactions, collaborative activities in this field continue to be limited in extent and poor in quality. A number of possible explanations for these findings are explored and analysed within an inter‐organizational theoretical framework. Although effective and frequent inter‐agency collaboration has proven to be difficult, it is argued that this is not an unattainable goal, and recommendations are offered in the last section.
