The Educational Needs of Parents of Handicapped Students.
Dangel, Harry L.; And Others
A Georgia survey during the 1988 Individualized Education Program (IEP) review process examined the educational needs of parents of handicapped children. Returned surveys (N=990) indicated parents felt needs for help with the following: motivating children; having children take responsibility; and developing learning activities to support school work. Items specifically related to special education (e.g., developing IEPs) were seldom selected as an area of training need. Eleven percent of the parents indicated that they had attended a workshop for parents within the past 12 months, and 81% of these parents indicated that the workshop was excellent or good. Tables detail survey findings. (24 references) (DB)
