A Cross-Cultural Study of Professional Opinions on the Role of Parental Values and Attitudes in Early Childhood Education of the Mentally Retarded in England and the United States.
Patryla, Victoria
The study was conducted to present a cross-cultural sampling (the United States and Great Britain) of >50 educators' and psychologists' views regarding the role of parental values and attitudes in the early education of mentally retarded children. Two major implications were discovered: (1) parents can and should be taught specific techniques to enable them to act as educators of their own children; and (2) it would be beneficial to organize a series of committees at local, regional, and national levels composed of one member of each agency serving the mentally handicapped. Respondents also saw a need for parent involvement from the beginning and establishment of parent influence groups. (Author/SBH)
