The Parent Needs Inventory.
The "Parent Needs Inventory" (PNI) is designed to identify needs and concerns of parents of very young handicapped children and to provide an objective measure of program effectiveness. Using the Q-sort process, the PNI compares the parent's "real" and "ideal" perceptions of themselves in three areas--the grieving process, knowledge of child development, and knowledge of community resources. Results from a pilot study, involving test review by professionals and parents, indicate the instrument is a useful and attractive aid to professionals working with parents of handicapped children.
