Strategies for the Design of Parent Training Programs: Intellectual Stimulation and Motivation of Young Children.
Morreau, Lanny E., Ed.
A summary of the input of seven professionals to the planning and development of a parent-training program, "Teaching Your Child", is presented in this report. The articles included are written as applied demonstrations of decision rules to be incorporated into programs for helping parents stimulate their children intellectually. A brief discussion of the problem toward which the project was directed is presented first, followed by a general review of the literature delineating the major areas to be discussed. The papers deal with activity development and implementation by parents, behavior modification techniques, potential tutoring of mentally retarded children, and behavioral engineering for family life. A paper describing the incorporation of this information into the"Teaching Your Child" program concludes the report. (SH)
