Parents as Teachers: A Rationale for Involving Parents in the Education of Their Young Handicapped Children.
Levitt, Edith; Cohen, Shirley
This literature review highlights the need for parent intervention programs in the education of their young handicapped children. Supportive research is cited from the following areas: Home-based programs for the disadvantaged; home-based programs for the handicapped; developmental factors in cognitive dysfunction; motivation; and the parent as mediator. It is suggested that remediation of cognitive dysfunction requires early intervention, the involvement of parents (particularly mothers), and extensive curricular organization. Implications for parent intervention programs are also reviewed. (CS)
