Schools are central to the life of students and to their parents, and this is so whether or not the child has a disability (Mann, Moni, & Cuskelly, 2016). Burke, Rios, and Aleman-Tovar (2020) are right to argue that more attention should be paid to the parent–school relationship as it has the potential to add to or ameliorate the stressors often associated with having a child with a disability (e.g., Patton, Ware, McPherson, Emerson, & Lennox, 2018). While some research on the roles of schools as supports or stressors, or both, of families has been conducted, there is a relatively little that has focused on parents of a child with a disability.
