Mom and Dad Can Help: Parents' Role in Career Education for the Handicapped Child. An Information Program for Parents.
Nebraska Univ., Lincoln. Dept. of Vocational-Technical Education.
This manual for a program to teach parents of handicapped children to participate in their children's career education consists of a facilitator's manual, a parent training program, and a parent information packet. The facilitator's manual contains an overview of the program with specific directions for conducting the lectures, discussions, and small group activities that are to take place at each of the program's four, ninety-minute group sessions. A workshop planning guide, pre- and posttests, a parent reaction questionnaire, and evaluation forms are also included. The four components of the parent training program contain behavioral objectives, learning activities, transparencies, and printed materials on the theory of career education, how parents can support their child's education in school, how parents can enhance their child's development at home, and how they can enhance their child's transition to community life. Information on the goals and rationale on the program is provided in the parent information packet along with supplementary and resource materials on such topics as legal rights of the handicapped, teaching hints, goal setting, jobs found within occupational clusters, questions to ask when considering a job, and steps for effective job/skill/interest matching.
