Working with Parents: Individualizing Needs. PEEEC [Project for Early Education of Exceptional Children].
Adams, Judy C.
The manual highlights the components of the parent involvement of the Project for Early Education of Exceptional Children (PEEEC), a demonstration project serving 3 to 8 year old children in Kentucky with multiple handicaps. Following an introduction on the philosophical/theoretical foundations of the PEEEC parent services model is a section on the five parents services model goals: the parent recognizes and understands the child's handicap, the parent meets the basic needs of the child and family, the parent demonstrates adjustment toward the child's handicap, the parent learns and carries out intervention techniques appropriate to the child's handicap and needs, and the parent acts as an advocate for handicapped children. Subsequent sections offer information on setting goals and objectives through a family needs inventory; rating procedures, activities/materials/resources; the parent services evaluation; the group/individual needs assessment profile; and other needs assessment resources. Appendixes include 1979-80 parent services data, a copy of the family needs inventory, and a parent questionnaire. (SB)
