Parent Partnerships in Special Education: Purposes, Models and Barriers.
Royster, Amy Jo; McLaughlin, T. F.
B.C. Journal of Special Education, v20 n2 p24-33 1996
A review of the literature on parental involvement in the education of a child with a disability examines models of parental involvement, barriers to participation, and ideas for training. It concludes that parent-professional partnerships are intended to empower parents and enhance communication. Such partnerships cannot be established without greater parental participation in the educational process. (Author/DB)
