Purpose: This presentation contains a detailed description of how to build effective teams that use Interprofessional Collaborative Practices (IPCP) with special education professionals, general education teachers, speech and language pathologists and families of children with severe disabilities. Method: This presentation provides information on using the essential elements of team building and IPCP to provide quality care to families who have children with severe disabilities. The six essential elements for team building are described and suggestions for including families are indicated for each: a) setting goals, b) roles and responsibilities, c) effective and efficient process, d) communication and interpersonal interactions, e) collaborative problem solving and f) evaluation. The four competency domains of IPCP are embedded into each of the team building elements to demonstrate how teams can implement IPCP. Results: A case study illustrates the difficulty one parent experienced working with a team across the six essential team building elements when seeking inclusion for her child with severe disabilities. Conclusions: Building teams with IPCP can be effective to include families and create high quality outcomes for individuals with severe disabilities. As a result of this session participants will be able to : 1) Use the team building process 2) Facilitate collaborative relationships with families who have children with disabilities 3) Gain a perspective that parents have regarding participation on team work with professionals
