This chapter looks at the possibility of having parents and families as ‘change agents’ for children with special educational and other special needs. It observes the changing population of children with disabilities and SEN, as well as the implications for family support. The chapter then provides definitions of partnership, which may help improve the life chances of disabled children and their families. Family-focused interventions, creating resilient families and children, listening to disabled children and young people, challenges and opportunities in current government policy, and the new relationship between schools, pupils, and parents, are discussed as well.

Keywords: change agents; special needs; changing population; family support; implications; partnership; family-focused interventions; government policy
