Cohen, Shirley, Ed.; Cohen, Michael, Ed.
Presented are proceedings from a 2-day special study institute intended to define the roles which Regional and Associate Special Education Instructional Materials Centers (SEIMC), particularly those in the downstate New York region, can play in relating to parents of handicapped children. Four mothers describe their problems in obtaining adequate diagnostic and treatment services for their handicapped children. Parents and educators discuss the success of the Parent Advisory Committee in obtaining assistance from the county school district for handicapped pupils. Other presentations concern area working committee reports about plans for working with parents of handicapped children, parent involvement in a program for preschool multiply handicapped children, parents as program participants and co-educators, and a training program for volunteer reading tutors. Also considered are behavior management techniques for parents, language as the tool for learning, and educational materials available to parents from the SEIMC network. (GW)
