A Parent's Program in a School for the Deaf.
Rotter, Paul
The monograph is aimed at helping groups of parents associated with schools or classes for deaf children who form associations with a view toward improving both existing programs and their own efforts at raising a deaf child. Presented first is a broad view, based on a survey of related literature within the last decade, of parents' programs. Discussed are the importance of involving parents in the educational process, means of establishing school-home communication, the nature of parents' programs and the role of parents and school in them, a mental health approach for professionals to take in attempting to meet parents' needs, a survey of types of parents' activities, and the origin of parent education in U.S. schools. Following this general presentation, the parents' program of the Lexington School for the Deaf in New York City is detailed. Covered are inception, the school's view, scope of program, parents' role, organization of parents' association, officers' duties, and committee activities. Listed are sources to consult for help in strengthening parents' programs. Meeting schedules and other information on the Lexington parents' program are appended. (KW)
