Developing Community Support for the Education of Handicapped Children: A Parent's Guide.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh. Div. for Exceptional Children.; Kentucky State Dept. of Education, Frankfort. Bureau of Education for Exceptional Children.; Mid-South Regional Resource Center, Lexington, KY.
Designed for parents of handicapped children in Kentucky, the booklet contains suggestions for parent involvement and advocacy. Planning informal activities is the focus of the first section which covers informal get togethers, discussion groups, and film viewing sessions. Planning steps for more formal group activities such as workshops are considered in the second section, which addresses questions of parent needs and child care. A primer on publicity summarizes newspaper, television, and radio coverage as well as the use of newsletters. The final section reviews the functions of the State Advisory Panel for Exceptional Children, the Developmental Disabilities State Planning Council, and the Committee for a Comprehensive System of Personnel Development.
