The purpose of the Master’s degree is to research the cooperation between counsellors and parents of children with special needs in kindergarten, I am also interested in the counsellors’ role in the process of guiding the children, in the methods which they use, and in the parents’ role in the procedure. In the theoretical part of the master’s thesis, I present the parents of children with special needs, and children with special needs and how to help them. I then define counselling work, the counselling relationship and principles for performing counselling work in kindergartens, and the cooperation between parents and counsellors. The results of the research showed that counsellors cooperate with parents from the beginning. During the guiding the counsellor supports the family with counselling. During the procedure the counsellor also cooperates with the pedagogue and other professional workers in the kindergarten. The counsellor also connects the kindergarten with other institutions.
