Abstract

This article supports the perspective of Jan Valle regarding the importance of recognizing the subjectivity inherent in decisions about Learning Disabilities. The author argues that the perspectives of both parents and professionals are informed by subjective judgments that must be taken into account in decision making.A reciprocal approach to interactions between parents and professionals will improve mutual understanding and will allow professionals to appreciate the limits of their own knowledge.
