Abstract

The planning of cooperative work in the process of providing psycho-pedagogical support to children with special educational needs, as well as the detection, study, assessment, prevention and modern professional interventions are among the important issues, which justify the importance of collaboration between psycho-pedagogical support team members while providing support in different settings to learners with different needs.  The planning of cooperative work with children with special educational needs is a very responsible and important process, in this case, the cooperation of specialists considered to be a point of interest, as well as the direct connection of the specialist with the relatives and parents of the child.

As such, there is a few literatures on collaborative work between specialists providing psycho-pedagogical support to children with special educational needs, and there is no any representing the situation in Armenia or presented in Armenian language literature as such, despite the fact that in various developmental centers, public schools and regional psycho-pedagogical support centers, they are already trying to collaborate and make the work process more structured.

Within the frame of this study observation and literature review as research methodology are used to understand the main gaps and challenges of cooperative work between specialists while providing psycho-pedagogical support to children with special education needs.
