Abstract Owing to the importance of parents as partners of teachers in Special Education (SPED) institutions, various scientific explorations were conducted to understand the parents` experiences in dealing with their children with special needs. Among these, there is a dearth of studies that unveiled the experiences of parents in the upland municipalities of the Philippines towards the development of responsive interventions tailored to the parents` needs. This prompted the investigation in Rosario Elementary School - Special Education Center, Cervantes District to determine the parents` challenges in dealing with their children with special needs and their coping as insights in the development of a practical intervention.
This endeavor utilized the Qualitative Method with Case Study as its design. It considered total enumeration to comprehensively depict the picture of the parents` experiences. Using an interview protocol, data were gathered and analyzed thematically.
After the analyses of the transcripts, the study revealed that parents face emotional stress, financial constraints, communication obstacles, and a lack of methods to employ for their children`s acquisition of academic skills and basic life skills. They cope by being optimistic, empathetic, resourceful, and hardworking. A SPED – Based Parental Convergence Program was developed tailored to the findings.
Through parents` kind hearts, they thrive every day despite the challenges they encounter. However, they need to be armed with various supports from a pool of experts, concerned authorities, and their fellow parents for them to be more productive. Further, studies may be conducted to validate the study`s findings.
