The present study deepens the understanding of the participation of families in the progress of Inclusive Education (IE) in the first cycle of Basic Education, intending to conceptualize participation, involvement and barriers/facilitators of this process.
Based on a Systematic Literature Review methodology, a search was conducted in the Scopus and ERIC databases using the keywords: participation, school, family, and inclusion.
The eligible criteria for the inclusion of studies were articles or book chapters (blogs, whole books and abstracts were excluded); open access; published between 2017 and 2021; written in Portuguese, Spanish or English; addressing the points of IE, family, participation, involvement and school. The selected studies were analyzed according to the PRISMA Statement (Liberati et al., 2009).
Studies showed that family participation is essential for school success and the inclusion process to facilitate children's cognitive, and socio-emotional development (Assefa & Sintayehu, 2019).
Teachers use the following strategies to promote this collaboration: extracurricular activities, socialization, creation of inclusive spaces, and search for resources that promote participation (Ballido-Cala, 2021).
Inclusion is more successful when there is good communication between family and school (Erol & Turhan, 2018). Among the barriers hindering this participation are highlighted: prejudice, socioeconomic difficulties, lack of time and family interest, lack of communication and the perception of education professionals about the importance of this partnership (Arce, 2019; Odongo, 2018).
These studies highlight the need to develop projects/resources that promote inclusion, allowing the schools to collaborate with families, meeting the needs of children and promoting the inclusion of all students.
